The Bigger Picture
How will Low-Threat Standards be Applied to Non-Petroleum Releases?
How will this state-wide (and, if California is the leader, eventually nation-wide) change in fuel hydrocarbon cleanup goals affect other industries?
For real estate investors or banks loaning money on properties that are closed under the LTCP, are there changes in lending attitudes that reflect the regulatory changes in the LTCP?
Will LTCP affect property owners or tenants of adjacent properties in any significant way?
Will LTCP impact the insurance industry?
What consequences are foreseeable for industries such as industrial solvents releases?
We are documenting the changes resulting from the LTCP implementation and are accepting essays which provide documentation and perspectives about this issue, to assist in generating this bigger picture (see the Contact Us tab).
In addition, please complete one of our surveys, in support of this mission, and pass along any information that you feel would help us to track the evolution of this concept of “low threat” case closure of contaminated sites.
