Connecticut is seeking $344,000 from five women for the remediation of vapors emanating from a gas station site they inherited. Defective underground gas tanks contaminated the soil at the site and an adjoining property, but the state Underground Storage Tank Petroleum Clean-up Program provided a $483,000 reimbursement to the company running the station at the time. An amendment, however, prohibits claims by property owners from whom the state is seeking payment for remediation.
