Description:

It has been nearly 40 years since Love Canal ushered in the reality of dealing with environmental issues on legacy properties. Love Canal also triggered a number of regulations related to how hazardous substances and pollutants are defined and who should be responsible for clean-up obligations, namely the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA). The bittersweet reality of Love Canal is that anyone employed in an environmental position can be thankful for the regulatory fall out of Love Canal. Over the years, companies have done a good job of identifying their environmental legacies and in some cases, their legacy sites are working towards closure in some type of State or Federal Program. However, the current issue at hand is how long these legacy sites languish in the no man's land between discovery and closure. Many of these sites were discovered decades ago when the sting of Love Canal still resonated with stakeholders. With the advancement of regulations, technology and experience/knowledge stakeholders are set up better than ever to handle legacy sites and put them back into use. This webinar will present the issues faced with lingering legacy sites and discuss how a new look into the closure approach (through the lens of today's environment) can help push these site closer to the finish line.
