Gain an understanding of the proper concepts and latest technologies that can have a direct impact on your case.
Groundwater contamination sites and groundwater water supply systems are complex and the manner in which they are managed are dependent on constantly changing technologies, regulations and water conditions. Navigating through groundwater transport issues and understanding the process required for incorporating groundwater migration/remediation concepts into your case/project will be presented. Topics will include the court’s rejection of EPA’s listing of the West Vermont Drinking Water Contamination Site, how some state agencies have persuaded EPA to defer NPL listing in certain cases, and the recent decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals finding that groundwater contamination can be a ‘point source’ if hydrologically connected to surface water.
