SURF, the Sustainable Remediation Forum has collaborated with MassDEP, EcoAdapt, and Boston University to evaluate the potential vulnerability of 6,001 MCP sites.  Site-specific factors included climate change-related flooding and inundation, as well as community and environmental sensitivity parameters.  

A webinar entitled Vulnerability of Hazardous Waste Sites to Climate Change includes a description of the project as well as how it ties in with the proposed 2019 MCP Amendments.
