The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), known as Superfund, governs the investigation and remediation of disposal sites and/or treatment facilities that are no longer active, wherever a previous release has been identified. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) considers a company to be liable for these sites if it (1) produced waste disposed at the site, (2) owned or operated the site, (3) transported waste to the site, or (4) arranged for waste to be transported or disposed at the site. If a company falls into one of these four categories, they are considered a potential responsible party (PRP) and are liable for the cost to study and remediate the site.
The management of Superfund sites requires focused attention on several aspects of the regulations that include a variety of activities.
- Negotiation of administrative orders and decrees by USEPA and Department of Justice regulators
- Development and implementation of Investigation Work Plans
- Evaluation of environmental sampling data and report preparation
- Study and assessment of ground water regimes and off-site issues
- Risk Exposure Assessment
- Negotiations of technical issues and additional work requirements with the USEPA
- Identification and negotiation of remedial feasibility alternatives
- Development and implementation of community relations programs
- Long term operation and maintenance
