Description

Brownfields; public notice of voluntary remediation plans. Requires the Department of Environmental Quality to notify the owners of neighboring properties when there is an application to participate in the Voluntary Remediation Program. The owners of neighboring properties will be permitted to participate in a public comment process prior to the adoption of a voluntary remediation plan and demand a public hearing on the Department's approval of a voluntary remediation plan or issuance of a certificate of satisfactory completion of remediation. Bars the Department from issuing any certificate of satisfactory completion of remediation without the consent of the owners of neighboring properties if any substance identified by federal guidelines pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water Act has been found on the subject's property and in groundwater concentrations in excess of the applicable maximum contaminant level.
