Rethinking the Steps for Effective Identification of Third Parties at Sediment Sites

The 8th International Symposium and Exhibition on the Redevelopment of Manufactured Gas Plant Sites

Partner Russ Selman will present on the steps necessary to develop the difficult proof at multiparty sediment sites. He will discuss how sediment sites challenge utilities to engage in aggressive measures to ensure that ratepayers achieve fair cost recovery from the many responsible parties who may be overlooked. Sediment sites require that utilities examine the many sources of contaminants from other manufacturers co-located at the sediment site and who operated similar and often dependent industries. The similarity of wastes among multiple parties and the ancientness of these co-located operations requires thoughtful evaluation to achieve fair parity among the responsible parties.
