Often significant releases to the environment lead to media coverage and community involvement. We have worked with many large contaminated sites over the years. At these sites we have maintained good relations with citizens groups and affected neighboring landowners. We know how do deal with environmental justice issues in ways resulting in win-win situations for the site owner and the neighbors.
Litigation Support and Expert Witness Services
Because of the large cost of cleaning up many contaminated sites, there is often litigation among various present and past owners and operators of the site and one or more insurance companies who might be asked to pay a claim. We are subject matter experts with considerable experience in helping to determine when releases occurred and how the contaminants entered into and migrated through the subsurface and the groundwater aquifers involved. Because we have hands on remediation experience, we are ideally suited to evaluate the effectiveness and costs of various cleanup alternatives.
