Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas has established the Arkansas Remedial Action Trust Fund Act (RATFA), which is the state's equivalent to the federal Superfund program. In 1995, Arkansas amended RATFA to include the Arkansas Voluntary Clean-Up Act (Brownfields Law), a brownfields redevelopment amendment that allows a prospective purchaser of an abandoned industrial site to limit its liability under the state Brownfields Program. In 1997, several amendments to the Brownfields Law were adopted that expand the types of properties which qualify for the program, further limit financial liability for purchasers of Brownfields properties, and provide for a low-interest loan program to be established for participants in the program.

Administration and enforcement. ADEQ's Hazardous Waste Division coordinates and implements the Brownfields Program to redevelop properties with either real or perceived hazardous substance contamination.
