This act also creates a brownfield property cleanup program within the agency of natural resources that provides program participants some protection from certain liabilities pursuant to 10 V.S.A. § 6615 in exchange for having the secretary of natural resources review and oversee work plans for investigation, abatement, removal, remediation, and monitoring a contaminated property.

Effective Date: Sections 1-5, May 16, 2008; Sections 6-10, July 1, 2008.
