Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program

The Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program (ACCP) Reimbursement program reimburses a responsible person (RP) for a portion of eligible cleanup costs. The discharge site maximum was increased from $400,000 to $650,000 for eligible costs incurred on or after July 1, 2017. The program financial coordinator processes reimbursement applications for costs incurred for investigation and corrective action at long-term remediate and spill sites. Applications are reviewed in close coordination with ACCP case managers to ensure clean-up is performed in a cost effective and timely manner. The reimbursement process begins when an application for reimbursement for a spill or cleanup project is submitted by a RP. The financial coordinator reviews supporting documentation submitted with the application to ensure costs are eligible in accordance with ATCP 35 requirements. Following review, the department recommends an amount for reimbursement and seeks approval from the Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Council (ACCC), a six-member advisory council composed of farmers and members of the regulated community. The department then makes reimbursement payments at the end of each quarter through the state of Wisconsin's financial accounting system.
