Our whole-system approach achieves compliance at complex Superfund site

Summary

  • Our clients faced a prescriptive Record of Decision (ROD) that required them to address a pond containing arsenic, ammonia, and other contaminants at a complex Superfund site.
  • Numerous experts, each focusing on a specific challenge, had already worked on the case, but the parties wanted our big-picture view of whether the prescribed remedy would be a reliable and cost-effective solution.
  • We identified potential flaws with the proposed remedy and presented alternate approaches, ultimately drawing on technical expertise to persuade the EPA to accept alternative, more effective remedial approaches.
