NRD claims at the Palmerton Zinc Superfund site
The Palmerton Natural Resource Trustee Council, including both state and federal trustees, is currently pursuing NRD claims at the Palmerton Zinc Superfund Site in Carbon County, Pennsylvania. This site, which includes a portion of the Appalachian Trail, is near an historic zinc smelting facility. The trustees allege that numerous injuries to both aquatic and terrestrial resources were caused by zinc and other metals from the smelter site. Our attorneys represent the main PRP through a cooperative NRD assessment process and preparing legal defenses should they become necessary.
