Hot Topics in Superfund and RCRA

3/21/2014
The Grand America Hotel
Salt Lake City, UT

Deb Tellier, Speaker

This session will discuss new and challenging topics that are likely to impact practitioners in the fields of CERCLA, RCRA, and related areas. Subjects include a review of potential significant legal changes presented by EPA’s RCRA rulemaking activity and a look at the emerging legal issues associated with e-wastes. Moving on to CERCLA, the panel will discuss the processes, problems, and opportunities that arise from pre-ROD settlement of NRD claims, highlights of the first-of-its-kind Environmental Justice review of a CERCLA proposed cleanup plan, a new spin on approaching approportional liability among PRPs, and a review of state law approaches for allocating remedial costs.
