Abstract

Comparing the environmental features of the base closing (BRAC) process with state voluntary cleanup programs for brownfields sites, the article finds that lessons learned from the BRAC process turn out to be surprisingly useful not only in assessing how the military should remediate sites before transferring them, but also in discussing how the private sector should remediate and
reuse real property.

Keywords: Brownfields, voluntary cleanup programs, base closing, CERCLA
