The BVCP provides property owners with Missouri Department of Natural Resources oversight of cleanup activities and assures compliance with all State guidelines. Applicants pay for the BVCP's oversight costs, calculated at an hourly rate. Participation in the program is voluntary and applicants may withdraw at any time. When the BVCP is satisfied with the cleanup, the applicant is given either a Certification of Completion or No Further Action Letter. The department's Brownfields / Voluntary Cleanup Memorandum of Agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency states that a No Further Action Letter will be granted to the property owner at completion of the BVCP process.
