Will participating landowners increase their liability by participating?

You should consult with your legal counsel to evaluate your particular liability situation.  Participation in the project may increase your liability.  Commercial/industrial properties typically require a Phase I and possibly a Phase II investigation as part of any real estate transaction.  Participation in the project is free to eligible landowners/properties and therefore you could save these potential future costs by participating in the project.  Landowner environmental liability should decrease once properties are cleared by conducting either a Phase I or a Phase II.
