Environmental Land Use Restrictions

 An Environmental Land Use Restriction (ELUR) is a type of Environmental Use Restriction (EUR) that complies with the requirements of section 22a-133o of the Connecticut General Statutes, section 22a-133q of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, and the RSRs. An ELUR is an easement granted to the Commissioner by the property owner and 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
