Negotiating Superfund cleanup agreements: work with an attorney

We’ve been speaking in recent posts about the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund program, which has the goal of identifying and cleaning up sites contaminated with toxic waste, and then holding responsible parties responsible for that cleanup. In our last post, we spoke briefly about how the EPA generally approaches Superfund cleanup liability.

Liability for cleanup of Superfund sites, P.2

In previous posts, we’ve been discussing the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Program, and how liability is assigned to parties for the cleanup of sites contaminated with hazardous waste. As we noted, there are various parties that may be potentially responsible for funding a site cleanup effort. Not all parties will face the same liability, though.

Liability for cleanup of Superfund sites

In our last post, we mentioned that there has been opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal cleanup of a contaminated site in Brunswick, Georgia. As we noted, the area has already been designated as a Superfund site, meaning that it will be subjected to cleanup by the EPA.

Brunswick EPA cleanup proposal is too little, too late

A total of 801 acres in Brunswick, Georgia is currently the subject of an environmental dispute involving the question of how ambitious the government should be in cleaning up contaminated grounds. While the site involves extensive contamination involving a number of chemicals, there is a particular concern about dangerous levels of PCBs, lead, mercury, and so-called polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons.
