The EHSARA shall be conducted in conformity with the work plan for the facility developed by the department pursuant to section 6 of this act by an independent consultant selected by the department from a list of three candidates submitted by the owner of the subject facility or, at the option of the department, by the department or by an independent consultant contracted for directly by the department; except that the department, with respect to the former option, may request the owner of the subject facility to provide three additional candidate consultants if it finds all three originally submitted by the facility owner unacceptable.
