In order to protect our staff , citizens, and stakeholders during the COVID-19 Pandemic, TDEC has implemented an appointment-only model of providing in-person services at various locations, including our central office in the Tennessee Tower and environmental field offices. This model will allow us to better ensure continued delivery of services, implementation of consistent social distancing, and time to clean any shared public spaces. More information on TDEC's response to the pandemic is available here.
The Division of Remediation identifies and investigates hazardous substance sites, then uses practical and effective remedies to stabilize, remediate, contain, monitor, and maintain these sites. These efforts minimize threats to public health, safety, and the environment.
