Certification and Stewardship

The Quick Reference Guides focus on information related to certification or “no further action” of DTSC’s voluntary agreements, which may or may not include long-term stewardship such as Land Use Covenants and/or Operation and Maintenance provisions. Although only the Land Use Covenant Quick Reference Guide and the Financial Assurance Quick Reference Guides are currently available, the information on the certification process, Operation and Maintenance agreements and plans, and five-year reviews are currently under development. Please check in often!
