We help clients deal with the complex issues that arise in the remediation of contaminated sites, including hiring and supervision of environmental consultants, negotiation and resolution of cleanup obligations, notification requirements, permitting requirements, access agreements, restrictive covenants and institutional controls and negotiation with regulators regarding site closure requirements. We can also help negotiate cost cap insurance policies and agreements to manage our client’s financial risks. We work with environmental consultants, site remediation contractors, and regulators to address the cleanup process in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible.
The remediation of contaminated sites occurs under the direction and oversight of state (Michigan Department of Environmental Quality or MDEQ) or federal (Environmental Protection Agency or EPA) agencies, depending upon the nature and source of the contamination. We have experience in assisting clients with site remediation under the following programs:
- Part 213 Leaking Underground Storage Tank Program
- Part 201 Environmental Remediation Program
- Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Corrective Action Program
- Superfund Program (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act or CERCLA)
- Asbestos Removal
If you have any questions about these programs as they relate to your property, please give us a call.
