Senate Bill 01-145 gave authority to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to approve requests to restrict the future use of a property using an enforceable agreement called an environmental covenant. When a contaminated site is not cleaned up completely, land use restrictions may be used to ensure that the selected cleanup remedy is adequately protective of human health and the environment.
Senate Bill 01-145 is included in the Colorado Revised Statutes as Article 15 of Title 25 Part 3 (25-15-301 et seq. CRS). exit to Michie's Legal Resources
