PECFA Deploys Online Reporting Application

As a part of the newly-implemented Comm 47, the Wisconsin Department of Commerce (Commerce), Bureau of Petroleum Environmental Cleanup Fund Award (PECFA), requires that environmental consultants provide technical updates for petroleum-contaminated sites to retain PECFA - reimbursement eligibility.

To facilitate this reporting requirement, PECFA deployed an online site reporting application on July 6, 2006. The online reporting application, likely the only one of its kind in the nation, is used by environmental consultants to provide PECFA site review hydrogeologists with the contract update notifications and technical information required as part of the investigation and remediation of petroleum-contaminated sites.

The technical information that can be provided via the online application includes soil and groundwater analytical results, copies of site maps, cost estimates to achieve closed remedial action status and risk/environmental factor checklists.

The application can be accessed via the PECFA homepage, http://commerce.wi.gov/ER/ER-PECFA-Home.html, or at http://commerce.wi.gov/ER/ER-PECFA-SiteReporting.html.
