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.
