Short and long-term remedial response actions, that permanently and significantly reduce the dangers associated with releases or threats of releases of hazardous substances that are serious, but not immediately life threatening.
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), commonly referred to as Superfund, authorizes the United States government, through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to respond directly to releases, or threatened releases, of hazardous substances that may endanger public health, welfare or the environment.
Advisian can help clients navigate the regulatory challenges they face in sourcing water for their developments, understand the treatment and reuse needs to promote efficiency in water use during their project’s lifecycle, and proper and environmentally sound discharge at project closure.
CERCLA response is guided by the National Contingency Plan (NCP); which outlines EPA's national program for response to releases of hazardous substances, including a step-by-step process for conducting both removal and remedial actions.
