Contaminated Sites and Long-Term Stewardship: Meeting Obligations for Residual Contamination
Best Practices for Counsel in Implementing, Maintaining and Enforcing LTS
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide guidance for environmental counsel representing companies planning, implementing, maintaining and enforcing long-term stewardships (LTS) at contaminated sites to minimize legal risks.
- Threshold criteria
- Monitoring plan
- Recording keeping, reporting requirements
- Mitigation remedy
- Management of ongoing risks
- Change of ownership issues
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What factors should counsel consider when determining which LTS tools are to be implemented?
- What steps can counsel recommend to ensure LTS measures are effective and meet compliance requirements?
- What framework does the EPA guidance provide to ensure the requirements for implementing LTS are met?
