MassDEP TURA Reporting Timelines and Tools

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MassDEP will treat as timely any Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Plan Summary or Report filed up to 90 days after the current State of Emergency is terminated.

Pursuant to Governor Baker’s Executive Orders regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, MassDEP has extended the reporting and planning deadline for submission of the TURA Plan Summary and Report. The new extended reporting and planning deadlines can be found on these MassDEP websites:
