Although I agree it should be the responsibility of companies who left the land uninhabitable . But how do you make them pay if they are bankrupt?? Or out of business?In my town prime real estate on the river could not be developed in any manner. No one to hold responsible. If there was not brownfield money available the land would have sat vacant for another 30 years. I’d love to be able to squeeze every $ out of those polluters but they are dead and or broke. Perhaps if we had more stringent laws to prevent this kind of pollution we wouldn’t have to pay to clean the land up.
