(a) The applicant shall provide to the Director a site history for the property, prepared by an individual with the requisite training and experience, as described in regulations adopted pursuant to Section 22A.14. The site history shall contain a statement indicating whether the property is listed on the National Priorities List, published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency pursuant to the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. Section 9604(c)(3) or listed as a hazardous substance release site by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control or the State Water Resources Control Board pursuant to the California Hazardous Substances Account Act, California Health and Safety Code Section 25356, which sites shall not be subject to San Francisco Department of Public Health jurisdiction. The site history shall also include results of a permit records search investigating the history of permitted uses on the site, as well as any known or discovered unpermitted uses or activities on site, to the extent such information is available, that would generate a reasonable expectation that hazardous substances may be present in the soil and/or groundwater. The applicant shall file the site history with the Director and the Director shall accept the report if the requirements of this section are met. If the site history does not comply with the requirements of this Section, the Director shall notify the applicant in writing within 30 days of receipt of the report, indicating the reasons the report is unacceptable.
(b) If the site history indicates that there is no information that hazardous substances may be present in the soil or groundwater at concentrations exceeding either the Department of Toxic Substances Control's or Regional Water Quality Control Board's health risk levels, or other applicable standards, given the intended use, the Director shall provide the applicant and the Director of Building Inspection with written notification that the applicant has complied with the requirements of this Article.
