RCRA citizen action lawsuit
Our attorneys currently represent a former wire and cable manufacturer at a site where both the property and the adjacent river sediments have been significantly contaminated by PCBs. We successfully defended the client against a RCRA citizen action lawsuit and successfully pursued a cost recovery action against the United States. Our team also negotiated consent decrees putting in place the negotiated remedy for the upland portions of the site. After settling the lawsuit, we established vehicles for cooperative interaction with the surrounding community, regarding redevelopment planning, and are assisting in the redevelopment process. We have also been working on behalf of the client to advocate preferred remedies for the river sediments.
