USEPA Congratulates ASTM Task Group for Completed Guidance on Continuing Obligations
The ASTM Task Group that guided and debated building Standard Guide for Identifying and Complying With Continuing Obligations was congratulated by the USEPA Office of Brownfield and Land Revitalization. David Lloyd on behalf of the Brownfield Office and the entire USEPA sent his congratulations in an August 1 letter to Terradex asking that this be extended to the ASTM Task Group. A copy of the letter may be viewed at this link.
At Terradex, we found the engagement by both the Brownfield Office and the Office of Site Remediation and Enforcement integral to the building a better guide. Already, a focus shift is underway whereby this guidance by ASTM in conjunction with policy by the agency itself will bring greater clarity in expectation for landowners as well as start setting practice norms to increase institutional control effectiveness.
