Brownfield Master Inventory (BMI)

The Maryland Department of the Environment is required by §7-223(1) of the Environment Article to create a master list of sites where there is reason to believe or has been not controlled hazardous substances may be present. In the past, the State Master List and Non-Master List have served this purpose. For the past year, LRP has worked to develop a approach that combines sites from these lists into a single, comprehensive list called the "Brownfield Master Inventory". The Department believes this approach is consistent wit State and federal law. For example, CERCLA § 101(39)(A) defines a brownfield site as “real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.” This definition is very broad and covers many different types of properties. To simplify access to information about the sites on the BMI, LRP has created individual county reports of active and archived (or closed) sites. These reports will be updated qua and are listed below. The reports also include links to fact sheets that may be accessed from the page or by going to the  LRP Fact Sheets and Statistics  webpage.

To select a BMI Report, please use the first drop down box to select the County. Next use the second drop down box to select the Active (No) or Archived (Yes)  Status.
