COVID-19 TURA Plan & Report Filing Deadlines Extended

MassDEP has updated the Toxic Use Reduction (TURA) Plan and Report filing deadlines. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MassDEP will treat as timely any Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Report and Plan Summary filed up to 120 days after the original July 1, 2020, deadline (or by November 1, 2020).

All other TUR requirements under M.G.L. Chapter 21I and 310 CMR 50.000 remain in effect, and the facilities subject to them must continue to comply, as well as operate in a manner that is protective of public health and the environment.
