The Comprehensive Environmental Cleanup and Responsibility Act contains general provisions (sections 705-729), along with the Voluntary Cleanup and Redevelopment Act (sections 730-738) and the Controlled Allocation of Liability Act (sections 742-751).
Together, the three sections describe state regulations pertaining to remedial actions following the release of hazardous substances. Private parties are encouraged to clean up sites where such releases have occurred, and funding is allocated to study, plan, and undertake the rehabilitation, removal, and cleanup of sites within the state at which no voluntary action has been taken.
