PART I - REGULAR COAST GUARD

CHAPTER 19 - ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND RESTORATION PROGRAM

-HEAD-

Sec. 691. Environmental Compliance and Restoration Program

-STATUTE-

(a) The Secretary shall carry out a program of environmental

compliance and restoration at current and former Coast Guard

facilities.

(b) Program goals include:

(1) Identifying, investigating, and cleaning up contamination

from hazardous substances and pollutants.

(2) Correcting other environmental damage that poses an

imminent and substantial danger to the public health or welfare

or to the environment.

(3) Demolishing and removing unsafe buildings and structures,

including buildings and structures at former Coast Guard

facilities.

(4) Preventing contamination from hazardous substances and

pollutants at current Coast Guard facilities.

(c)(1) The Secretary shall respond to releases of hazardous

substances and pollutants -

(A) at each Coast Guard facility the United States owns,

leases, or otherwise possesses;

(B) at each Coast Guard facility the United States owned,

leased, or otherwise possessed when the actions leading to

contamination from hazardous substances or pollutants occurred;

and

(C) on each vessel the Coast Guard owns or operates.

(2) Paragraph (1) of this subsection does not apply to a removal

or remedial action when a potentially responsible person responds

under section 122 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response,

Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. 9622).

(3) The Secretary shall pay a fee or charge imposed by a state

(FOOTNOTE 1) authority for permit services for disposing of

hazardous substances or pollutants from Coast Guard facilities to

the same extent that nongovernmental entities are required to pay

for permit services. This paragraph does not apply to a payment

that is the responsibility of a lessee, contractor, or other

private person.

(FOOTNOTE 1) So in original. Probably should be capitalized.

(d) The Secretary may agree with another Federal agency for that

agency to assist in carrying out the Secretary's responsibilities

under this chapter. The Secretary may enter into contracts,

cooperative agreements, and grant agreements with State and local

governments to assist in carrying out the Secretary's

responsibilities under this chapter. Services that may be obtained

under this subsection include identifying, investigating, and

cleaning up off-site contamination that may have resulted from the

release of a hazardous substance or pollutant at a Coast Guard

facility.

(e) Section 119 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response,

Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. 9619) applies to

response action contractors that carry out response actions under

this chapter. The Coast Guard shall indemnify response action

contractors to the extent that adequate insurance is not generally

available at a fair price at the time the contractor enters into

the contract to cover the contractor's reasonable, potential,

long-term liability.
