UST Cleanup Funding Policy

  • Where appropriate, work with the California legislature to introduce policy to ensure efficient environmental cleanups of contaminated land and groundwater.

One necessity for efficient cleanups is appropriate funding. CORE introduced AB291 to ensure more appropriate funding levels were available for UST site cleanups in California in the near future. Without this funding, cleanups would continue to be performed in fits and starts as the cost of cleaning up contamination outpaces funding. Another consideration for efficient cleanups is a California UST Cleanup Fund that exists to cover the total liability of qualified UST cleanups.
