  • Covenant Not to Sue - A covenant not to sue is an assurance that once a site is cleaned up to current standards, the Commissioner will not require any additional cleanup in the future. A covenant not to sue is a tool that allows redevelopment of contaminated properties without the risk of liability for historical contamination.
  • Environmental Land Use Restrictions - An ELUR is a binding agreement between a property owner and the Commissioner that is recorded on the municipal land records. The purpose of an ELUR is to minimize the risk of human exposure to pollutants and hazards to the environment by preventing specific uses or activities at a property or a portion of a property.
