Hazmat on Public Lands

The Hazard Management and Resource Restoration (HMRR) Program commonly known as Hazardous Materials Management (HAZMAT) supports the Department of the Interior’s goals of Serving Communities and Resource Protection by protecting lives, resources and property, and improving the health of landscapes and watersheds.  As part of meeting this goal, the BLM focuses on increasing the percent of BLM facilities rated in good safety health and environmental condition; the percent of physical and chemical hazards mitigated; and, the percent of known contaminated sites that have been remediated.
