Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) has reportedly signed legislation (S.B. 528), effective May 1, 2012, that creates “realistic standards” for underground storage tank (UST) site cleanup and allows communities to return contaminated sites to productive use more quickly and efficiently. Amending the state’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, the new law deletes a requirement that the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) establish a cleanup classification system and audit all aspects of a site’s cleanup plan. Instead, the site owner or other responsible party must submit a final assessment and closure report to DEQ, which will have 90 days to decide whether to audit the cleanup. See Governor Rick Snyder Press Release, May 1, 2012.
