In today’s presentation (August 27th Public Information Session), a summary of the content within RI reports was provided. If source, extent and pathway of contaminants is discovered to have conveyed contaminants beyond the beyond the property boundary which legal entity is currently responsible for impact study costs and remediation costs?”
Act 2 requires that the Remedial Investigation Report defines the extent of contamination, including beyond the property boundaries. Two of the RIRs were not approved for that reason, which is why they required additional offsite work to further define the full extent of contamination in those areas. Any entity causing a release is responsible for the investigation and remediation of that release.
