In May of this year, EPA Administrator E. Scott Pruitt released a Memorandum stating his intention to “prioritize the Superfund program” and restore it to its “rightful place at the center of the agency’s core mission.” Whether Superfund will be prioritized remains to be seen, but Administrator Pruitt’s timing was appropriate considering some key issues impacting Superfund and site remediation. This Webinar will address some of these key issues, which can reach beyond Superfund and into the realm of business deals and real estate transactions. The topics covered will include:
- Update on the state of the law regarding CERCLA actions and the statute of limitations
- Update on vapor intrusion, including its addition to the Hazard Ranking System, updated EPA regulations, and elimination of OSHA exception
- Discussion of “emerging contaminants” and the issues they can create at a site
Recorded during a live webinar in October, 2017.
