 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.
