Follow-Up Report on the Petroleum Contamination Site Cleanup Reimbursement Program, Report No. 98-09, August 1998
Full report in PDF format

  • Since our prior report, the Legislature and the Department of Environmental Protection have implemented changes to the petroleum contamination cleanup program addressing all of our recommendations.
  • The Petroleum Contamination Site Cleanup Reimbursement Program was eliminated by the Legislature on August 1, 1996. The program ended with a backlog of approximately $540 million in reimbursement claims. These claims should be completely paid by the end of 1998 through the issue of bonds administered by the newly created Inland Protection Financing Corporation.
