Is anyone aware of any studies or reports that review the number of sites being cleaned up under state voluntary or brownfield cleanup programs? Alternatively, is anyone aware what states post this information on their websites?
EPA does not track total cleanups by states just cleanups by brownfield grantees. It seems to me that there are enormous data gaps that make evaluation of the effectiveness state brownfield/state clean programs very difficult.

Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Northampton Community College (PA) "not threatened" by plume
Study: Toxic plume harmless to Northampton Community College
By Dan Berrett
Pocono Record (PA)
March 1, 2010
A toxic plume underneath a former landfill lies less than a mile from the new campus of Northampton Community College, but it poses no evident threat to future students and staff, according to the college, an environmental study and a review of federal agency records.
"From everything we did before we bought the land for the campus, nothing points to our site ever having contaminated water under it," said Mark Culp, director of facilities and campus safety for NCC.
Concerns about the plume were stoked in a recent letter to the editor in the Pocono Record, which alleged that the plume had migrated under the new NCC site, and that the college had not done proper environmental testing before buying it.
