State Approaches to Monitoring and Oversight of Land Use Controls (CERCLA and Brownfields Research Center Subcommittee, October 2009)
This document was created by the ASTSWMO State Superfund Focus Group.  The purpose of this companion document is to serve as a resource for the States, EPA, local officials, and other parties interested in monitoring and oversight of LUCs.  The document presents the results of research on approaches taken by a number of States across the country to monitor and oversee LUCs in their State.  This resource document discusses a variety of issues and methods that States have developed related to monitoring and oversight of LUCs, including: identifying who is responsible for ensuring compliance; monitoring and oversight approaches; how oversight of LUCs is funded; and lessons learned by States that have developed and implemented oversight and monitoring programs.
