|(a) It is the responsibility of an owner or operator
to possess or acquire a sufficient interest in or right to the use
of the surface estate of the property for which an authorization is
issued, including the access route if access is not provided by public
right of way. The granting of an authorization neither conveys any
property rights or interest in either real or personal property nor
authorizes any injury to private property, invasion of personal rights,
impairment of previous contract rights, or any infringement of federal,
state, or local laws or regulations outside the scope of the authority
under which an authorization is issued.
(b) The owner or operator shall retain the right of
entry to the facility until the end of the closure activities for
inspection and maintenance of the facility.
