Provisions shall be made for controlling and mitigating accidental discharges.
The owner of a facility or other person responsible for an accidental discharge shall undertake all actions necessary to remediate such discharge. When deemed necessary by the commissioner, cleanup may be initiated by the department or other city agency. Costs associated with such cleanup shall be borne by the owner or other person responsible for the discharge. The department shall give such owner or other person written notice of such costs and an opportunity to be heard. Payment of such costs shall be recoverable in any manner authorized by law, rule or regulation. Failure to pay such costs shall cause a lien to be placed upon the premises pursuant to the provisions of FC117.4, as applicable, or against vehicles or other personal property in accordance with the provisions applicable thereto. Nothing in this section shall be construed to preclude the implementation of response measures, or the recovery of the costs of such measures, by any other city agency, either prior or subsequent to any response measure implemented pursuant to this section.
