On December 18, 2007, Pennsylvania became the 20th state to enact the Uniform Environmental Covenants Act (UECA) putting it at the forefront of states to adopt a statutory mechanism to create, modify, enforce and terminate land use and institutional controls at risk-based cleanup sites. The UECA will take effect on February 16, 2008. Not only does the UECA fundamentally change how we create and implement institutional controls and covenants going forward, it requires us to revisit Act 2 and Tank Act properties in current and former portfolios.
