  omissions of such municipality

contributes  to  an environmental crisis which impacts a sizable segment
of its citizens, creating property  damage  and  threatening  residents'
health,  and  where  such municipality or its departments either owns or
controls the infrastructure that can substantially mitigate  this  envi-
ronmental  issue  and bring relief to those residents, then such munici-
pality shall be required and directed to utilize that infrastructure  to
provide  a  clear, objective and quantifiable plan to obtain relief in a
timely manner.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
