Ability to Pay Information

Ability to pay determinations are sought when responsible parties claim they do not have the financial resources to pay their portion of the cleanup costs. The following financial affidavits are a tool used by the department’s financial analyst to determine the responsible party's apparent ability to comply with corrective actions, pay proposed penalties or the ability to pay a co-pay on a site cleanup. The analysis is performed as a courtesy in response to a claim of an inability to pay some or all of what is required. The financial affidavit is primarily utilized for situations involving enforcement activity, ATRP eligible sites and PCPP eligible sites. 

Any questions concerning a possible ability to pay situation should be referred to
