(c) Funding requirements for other properties will be determined individually and be based on the size of the property to which the environmental use control applies, toxicity and mobility of the contaminants to which the environmental use control applies, frequency of site inspections and the anticipated inspection costs, as determined by the department.

(1) Category 1 property includes property with the following characteristics: The property is not greater than five acres in size, the residual contamination is characterized by low toxicity and mobility, there is minimal anticipated maintenance of protective structures and the anticipated inspection frequency is once every five years. Category 1 properties would have a one-time payment by the applicant not to exceed $2,000 to fund the life of the environmental use control.

(2) Category 2 property includes property with the following characteristics: The property may cover areas larger than five acres in size, the residual contamination is characterized by moderate toxicity and mobility, there is limited anticipated maintenance of protective structures and more complicated and/or costly inspections are anticipated, with an inspection frequency of not more than once per year. Category 2 property would have a one-time payment by the applicant not to exceed $10,000 to fund the life of the environmental use control.

(3) Category 3 property includes property with some or all of the following characteristics: The property may cover a large acreage, the residual contamination is characterized by higher toxicity or mobility, complicated maintenance or monitoring of protective structures is required and frequent or complicated site inspections are anticipated, which may be more frequent than once per year. The inspection cost of category 3 properties is also dependent on the future uses of the property and the maintenance of protective structures by the property owner. For this reason, long term care agreements between the department and the applicant will be required for category 3 properties. These long term care agreements will include a provision to reimburse the department for costs incurred to perform the long term care at the property.

(d) The secretary shall remit to the state treasurer, in accordance with K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto, all moneys received from fees and long term care reimbursement agreements pursuant to this section. Upon receipt of the remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury and credit it to the environmental use control fund.
