§ 253.4. Requirements for and waiver of environmental covenants.
(a) Unless waived by the Department, activity and use limitations used to demonstrate or maintain attainment of a remediation standard under the Land Recycling Act or the Storage Tank Act must be in the form of an environmental covenant. An environmental covenant may be used with other types of environmental response projects.
(b) Remediation measures undertaken pursuant to the special industrial area provisions of the Land Recycling Act which include land use restrictions limiting use of the property to the intended purpose shall implement those land use restrictions in the form of an environmental covenant.
(c) For remediations that require an environmental covenant under subsection (a), requests and justifications for waivers from the requirement to develop and record an environmental covenant shall be submitted to the Department in writing no later than at the time of submission of the Remedial Action Completion Report or the Final Report. Any waivers that are granted by the Department will be issued in writing.
(d) An environmental covenant will not be required, but may be used, for property owned by the Federal government before transfer of the property to a non-Federal entity or individual. At least 120 days before the transfer of a property owned by the Federal government, at which engineering or institutional controls are used to demonstrate or maintain attainment of a remediation standard under the Land Recycling Act or the Storage Tank Act, the Department shall be notified of the proposed transfer of the property and be provided with a draft environmental covenant. The requirement for providing notice and a draft environmental covenant to the Department shall be incorporated into an installations master plan or other similar and appropriate remedial documentation.
