The purpose of the TSI+ Program is for DTSC to provide assessments, investigations, and cleanup planning to help evaluate real or perceived environmental contamination needed to allow redevelopment of brownfields to safe and productive uses.
Under the TSI+ Program, Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) provides assessment, investigation, or cleanup planning services at no cost to the applicant. The TSI+ Program focuses on brownfields for which redevelopment is complicated by the presence or potential presence of environmental contamination. Then intent of the program is to focus on brownfield properties in communities that are disadvantaged, have environmental justice issues, or are disproportionately burdened by and vulnerable to multiple sources of pollution, such as those with high CalEnviroScreen scores (link opens new window).
