42845.  (a) Any person who stores, stockpiles, or accumulates waste

   (b) (1) Upon failure of any person to comply with the cleanup or
abatement order, the Attorney General, at the request of the board,
shall petition the superior court for that county for the issuance of
an injunction requiring the person to comply with that order. In any
suit, the court shall have jurisdiction to grant a prohibitory or

may warrant.
   (2) If the Attorney General declines, or is unable, to petition
the appropriate superior court for issuance of an injunction within
45 days from the board's request, pursuant to paragraph (1), the

specified in paragraph (1).


42846.  (a) The board may expend available moneys to perform any
cleanup, abatement, or remedial work required under the circumstances
set forth in Section 42845 which in its judgment is required by the
magnitude of endeavor or the need for prompt action to prevent
substantial pollution, nuisance, or injury to the public health or
safety. The action may be taken in default of, or in addition to,
remedial work by the violator or other persons, and regardless of
whether injunctive relief is being sought.
   (b) The board may perform the work itself, or by or in cooperation
with any other governmental agency, and may use rented tools or
equipment, either with operators furnished or unoperated.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, the board may enter into
oral contracts for that work, and the contracts, whether written or
oral, may include provisions for equipment rental and in addition the
furnishing of labor and materials necessary to accomplish the work.
The contracts are exempt from approval by the Department of General
Services pursuant to Section 10295 of the Public Contract Code.



42846.5.  If the owner of property upon which waste tires are
unlawfully stored, stockpiled, or accumulated refuses to allow the
board or its contractors access to enter onto the property and
perform all necessary cleanup, abatement, or remedial work as
authorized under Section 42846, the board or its contractors shall be
permitted reasonable access to the property to perform that activity
if an order setting civil liability has been issued or obtained
pursuant to Article 6 (commencing with Section 42850) by the board,
or by its designee pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 42850,
against the property owner, and the board finds that there is a
significant threat to public health or the environment.



42847.  If waste tires are cleaned up, the effects of the tires are
abated, or, in the case of threatened pollution or nuisance, other
necessary remedial action is taken by any governmental agency, the
person or persons who unlawfully stored, stockpiled, or accumulated
the waste tires or who unlawfully permitted the storage, stockpile,
or accumulation of waste tires or who threatened to cause or permit
the unlawful storage, stockpile, or accumulation of waste tires shall
be liable to that governmental agency to the extent of the
reasonable costs actually incurred in cleaning up the waste, abating
the effects thereof, or taking other remedial actions. The amount of
those costs shall be recoverable in a civil action by, and paid to,
the governmental agency and the board to the extent of the latter's
contribution to the cleanup costs from available funds. The board
shall seek recovery of its costs if that recovery is feasible.



42847.5.  (a) Any costs or damages incurred by the board under this
article constitute a lien upon the real property owned by any
responsible party that is subject to the remedial action. The lien
shall attach regardless of whether the responsible party is
insolvent. A lien imposed under this section shall arise at the time
costs are first incurred by the board with respect to a remedial
action at the site.
   (b) A lien established under this section shall be subject to the
notice and hearing procedures required by due process of the law.
Prior to imposing the lien, the board shall send the property owner
via certified mail a "Notice of Intent to Place A Lien" letter. This
letter shall provide that the owner, within 14 calendar days from the
date of receipt of the letter, may object to the imposition of the
lien either in writing or through an informal proceeding before a
neutral official. This neutral official shall be the board's
executive director or his or her designee, who may not have had any
prior involvement with the site. The issue before the neutral
official shall be whether the board has a reasonable basis for its
determination that the statutory elements for lien placement under
this section are satisfied. During this proceeding the property owner
may present information or submit documents, or both, to establish
that the board should not place a lien as proposed. The neutral
official shall assure that a record of the proceeding is made, and
shall issue a written decision. The decision shall state whether the
property owner has established any issue of fact or law to alter the
board's intention to file a lien, and the basis for the decision.
   (c) The board may not be considered a responsible party for a
remediated site merely because a lien is imposed under this section.
   (d) A lien imposed under this section shall continue until the
liability for the costs or damages incurred under this article, or a
judgment against the responsible party, is satisfied. However, if it
is determined by a court that the judgment against the responsible
party will not be satisfied, the board may exercise its rights under
the lien.
   (e) A lien imposed under this section shall have the force and
effect of, and the priority of, a judgment lien upon its recordation
in the county in which the property subject to the lien is located.
The lien shall contain a legal description of the real property that
is subject to, or affected by, the remedial action, the assessor's
parcel number, and the name of the owner of record, as shown on the
latest equalized assessment roll.
   (f) All funds recovered under this section on behalf of the board'
s waste tire stabilization and abatement program shall be deposited
in the California Tire Recycling Management Fund established under
Section 42885.



42848.  If, despite reasonable efforts by the board to identify the
person responsible for the unlawful storage, stockpiling, or
accumulation of waste tires or the condition of pollution or
nuisance, the person is not identified at the time cleanup,
abatement, or remedial work must be performed, the board shall not be
required to issue an order under this section.



42849.  (a) "Threaten" or "threat," for purposes of this article,
means a condition creating a substantial probability of harm, when
the probability and potential extent of harm make it reasonably
necessary to take immediate action to prevent, reduce, or mitigate
damages to persons, property, natural resources, or the public health
or safety.
   (b) If the board finds either an imminent threat to public health,
safety, or the environment, or a threat, as defined by subdivision
(a), the board may conduct an emergency meeting to determine the
legal, enforcement, cleanup, or other necessary actions that may be
taken to correct that imminent threat or threat. Such a finding by
the board shall be deemed to be an "emergency situation" for purposes
of, and in addition to the situations described in, Section 11125.5
of the Government Code.

damages to persons, property, natural resources, or the public health
or safety.
   (b) If the board finds either an imminent threat to public health,
safety, or the environment, or a threat, as defined by subdivision
