If the consent order concerns one or more parcels of land and such consent order requires, in whole or in part, the remediation of such land, the requirements and standards for such remediation shall not be modified by the [department] commissioner unless both the [department] commissioner and such party agree to such modification. The commissioner or a party to any consent order may seek declaratory and injunctive relief from the Superior Court to resolve any dispute concerning the terms and conditions of, and compliance with, the consent order. Such declaratory and injunctive relief shall be in addition to any other administrative or civil remedies allowed by law.
