The Costs of CERCLA Cleanup Activities Have Been Preponderantly Paid by the Parties Responsible for the Cleanup of Contamination

The purpose of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 is to fund the costs entailed by the cleanup activities required to remove hazardous substances from contaminated sites. However, the expenses of cleanup procedures are often very high, particularly if the contaminated region is extended and if the pollutants, which need to be abated are difficult to remove, as well as when the completion of the cleanup activities implies a long period of time. Thus, a proper distribution of costs is necessary between the parties involved.

The attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. can provide you with the assistance and legal representation you need in order to recover the costs of cleanup procedures and thus minimize your financial obligation in the case of hazardous substances contamination. Our lawyers are always available and can offer you all the information you need.
