Policy on Upgradient Contamination 

In accordance with the Remediation Standard Regulations (RCSA Section 22a-133k-1 through 133k-3), it is the policy of the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection that a down gradient property owner is not responsible for remediating groundwater contamination flowing onto his or her property from another site, as long as the contamination is present solely as a result of the off-site source(s). The Remediation Division of the Bureau of Water Protection and Land Reuse (860-424-3705) and the above referenced regulations should be consulted for further guidance on this matter.

This policy became effective on August 28, 1997.
