The director or his or her duly authorized representatives have the right, upon presentation
of proper identification, to enter upon any property for the purpose of conducting
studies or exploratory work to determine the existence of adverse effects of a landfill,
to determine the feasibility of the remediation or prevention of such adverse effects
and to perform the activities set forth in sections three and fifteen of this article. Such entry is as an exercise of the police power of the state for the protection
of public health, safety and general welfare and is not an act of condemnation of
property or trespass thereon. Nothing contained in this section eliminates any obligation to follow any process
that may be required by law.
