Department: EGLE - RRD News and Updates
Part 213, Leaking Underground Storage Tanks, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (Part 213) Section 21313a(3) allows EGLE to approve extensions of the statutory reporting deadlines for good cause upon an owner's or operator's (O/O's) written request 15 days prior to the reporting deadline. The Remediation and Redevelopment Division (RRD) has developed a Policy and Procedure to establish a process for granting extensions. RRD-23 covers responses to an O/O's request for an extension to Part 213 Initial Assessment Report (IAR) and Final Assessment Report (FAR) reporting deadlines. This procedure does not address a reporting extension for the Closure Report because there is no specific submittal deadline identified in the statute.
The procedures of this policy are intended to provide direction to RRD staff that will result in consistent application of granting extensions for good cause.
