Regardless of the number of releases involved, locations involved, covered parties involved, claims made, suits brought, or persons filing claims or bringing legal action, in no event may the amount of reimbursement for any release site exceed nine hundred ninety thousand dollars unless the director has determined a new occurrence has taken place and all claims for prior occurrences have been established or settled. The provisions of this chapter do not authorize the department to pay any exemplary and noneconomic damages, including damages for pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement, loss of society and companionship, hedonic damages, or punitive damages on behalf of any covered party.
