Activity and Use Limitations

At this site, activity and use limitations that EPA calls institutional controls are in place. Institutional controls play an important role in site remedies because they reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use. They also guide human behavior. For instance, zoning restrictions prevent land uses – such as residential uses – that are not consistent with the level of cleanup. For more background, see Institutional Controls.

On June 10, 2005, Town of Batavia filed a Declaration of Easement and Covenants and Restrictions with the Genesee County Clerk's Office that placed institutional controls on the future use of the site property. These institutional controls prohibit the installation or utilization of wells on the site for potable use and the construction of buildings or structures on site that may impede the effectiveness of the landfill cap and operation systems.
