DTSC is investigating or cleaning up more than 1,000 sites in California where hazardous materials have contaminated soil, soil gas, groundwater or surface water. DTSC prevents harm to people and the environment at these former industrial plants, military bases, businesses and landfills polluted from previous land uses.
DTSC ensures that hazardous waste and hazardous materials are safely managed in California, and guards against accidental releases that threaten the public and environment. DTSC ensures compliance by issuing permits, inspecting facilities and registering hazardous waste transporters.
Protecting Future Generations
DTSC promotes pollution prevention and safer consumer products through innovative science and engineering. Its efforts encourage voluntary reduction of pollution sources and product designs that reduce waste and toxic byproducts.
