Northeastern States District Hazardous Materials Management Program (HMMP)

By law, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) must protect its employees, public health, and resources from contamination by hazardous materials. Several major laws affect BLM's HMMP. The laws include Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, CERCLA/SARA, RCRA/HSWA, Toxic Substance Control Act, and Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. The HMMP supports oil and gas leasing program and Land and Realty Management Program.
