70.03   CLEANUP REQUIRED.
   Whenever a hazardous condition is created by the deposit, injection, dumping, spilling, leaking, or placing of a hazardous waste or substance, so that the hazardous substance or waste or a constituent of the hazardous waste or substance may enter the environment or be emitted into the air or discharged into any waters, including ground waters, the responsible person shall cause the condition to be remedied by a cleanup, as defined in the preceding section, as rapidly as feasible to an acceptable, safe condition.  The cost of cleanup shall be borne by the person having control over a hazardous substance or the political subdivision with jurisdiction over the location.  In unincorporated areas, if the person having control of a hazardous substance does not cause the cleanup to begin in a reasonable time in relation to the hazard and circumstances of the incident, the Board of Supervisors may proceed to procure cleanup services and bill the responsible person on behalf of the Story County Rural Fund.  If a political subdivision seeks the County’s assistance to procure cleanup of a hazardous waste or substance, the political subdivision shall reimburse the County for the cleanup costs associated with the cleanup as described in Section 70.04 of this chapter, Liability for Cleanup Costs.
