Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 23, 2011 -- “Environmental Regulation of Colorado Real Property” is a helpful tool for attorneys, developers, and environmental consultants to understand federal, state, and local environmental regulations. This book provides a way to quickly locate particular statutes and regulations—and understand how they apply. Real estate attorneys and developers will find it helpful for identifying environmental issues affecting the purchase and sale of real property, and minimizing or eliminating potential environmental liabilities.
Each of the chapters includes up-to-date information on statutory and regulatory developments, ranging from water quality and reporting obligations to sustainable development and cleanup of contaminated properties. Chapters on environmental covenants, environmental insurance, endangered species, and open space are invaluable in connection with the transfer and development of real property. Other chapters describe strategies and defenses for dealing with civil and criminal environmental litigation.
The 2011 supplement includes: a new section on the Denver Metropolitan Regional Air Quality Council; updated discussion of the ozone, including a rulemaking chronology; CERCLA/Superfund liability after BNSF; updated seller’s property disclosure form; CERCLA’s exemption for bona fide prospective purchasers (BFPPs) of contaminated property; discussion of the insurance pollution exclusion after Roinestad and New Salida Ditch; 2011 aboveground storage tank (AST) regulations; updated discussion of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); updated discussion of the Endangered Species Act (ESA); stricter new requirements relating to tax benefits of conservation easements; updated links relating to sustainable development; updated discussion of takings law, with a new section on judicial takings; and a new section on cost recovery actions under CERCLA.
