BRRTS on the Web


The pages below contain additional information from the BRRTS database containing "live" data in real time.

Action Code Reference List
List of all action codes, names, and descriptions grouped by Activity type in the Wisconsin DNR BRRTS database utilized for the tracking of cleanup and redevelopment of contamination sites.
Great Lakes Areas of Concern
The U.S.-Canada Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement [exit DNR] defines an Area of Concern (AOC) as "a geographic area designated by the Parties where significant impairment of beneficial uses has occurred as a result of human activities at the local level." An AOC is a location that has experienced environmental degradation. EPA and other federal and state agencies are working to restore the 25 remaining U.S. AOCs in the Great Lakes basin, five of which are in Wisconsin.

Drycleaner Facility Listing
A list of facilities that are enrolled in the Dry Cleaner Environmental Response Fund (DERF) or that have a reported historical use as a dry cleaning facility. This is only a listing of known remediation sites with a cleanup of contamination that may be related to dry cleaning substances. NOTE: The RR Program does not regulate or license Dry Cleaning Facilities. The “status” provided in this list is only in regards to the cleanup and not the operations of the facility.
Environmental Services Contractor List
A list of self-identified environmental services contractors. This is not a certification or registration list. The WI DNR does not certify that any of the contractors on this list are qualified to perform environmental work and does not endorse any of the listed contractors. To be added to this list, please email Jenny Meyer.
Liens/Notices of Contamination
Downloadable list of Liens and Notice of Contamination records currently in the Wisconsin DNR BRRTS database.
PFAS Site Listing
List of Activities in Wisconsin where the DNR has required further action due to confirmed per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) contamination. Please be advised that the information as presented may be incomplete and is subject to change as new information becomes available. PFAS data related to immediate spills is not available at this time.
Open Spill Incidents
List of open incidents currently being investigated and evaluated by regional spill coordinators and other program staff. Please be advised that the information as presented may be inaccurate or incomplete, and is subject to change as new information becomes available. Please also note, the final outcome of each incident is undetermined; some reported incidents may not be Spills and could be resolved as a different Activity type after the investigation is completed.
State-Funded Response Cleanups
List of Activities where the DNR used appropriations from the state's Environmental Fund to take action at properties or areas of concern where a responsible party (RP) (i.e., the individual/entity responsible for the contamination) is unknown, unwilling or unable to pay for necessary remediation. This does not include immediate spill responses, abandoned containers or provisions for potable water to homes. Please note: this data is typically updated only at the end of the fiscal year.
