There are three classes of “owners” eligible to apply for a site to be ranked. The first class, an owner of a dry cleaning facility or drop station, can apply for site ranking, provided that for active facilities, the facility is registered and current on fees, the dry cleaning operations are in compliance with applicable performance standards at the time of the release, and the owner is not in arrears for other monies owed to the State.
The second class is the owner of the real property on which the dry cleaning facility or drop station is or was located, who is also eligible to apply for site ranking. Certain former owners of real property on which the facility or drop station is or was formerly located are also eligible to apply for site ranking and make up the third class.
