The financial assurance shall remain available for the duration of the permit and until the site is closed, except to the extent it is released or modified by the department.

The department shall provide to the permittee a written directive for the necessary corrective action. [Formerly 459.517; 1987 c.540 §10; 1993 c.422 §24]
