CERCLA/MTCA Cost Recovery at 100+ Acre Site

Floyd|Snider was retained by a major Houston, Texas law firm to represent a confidential client in a cost-recovery lawsuit in Eastern Washington with both Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) claims. The matter involved a cleanup that had resulted in the unnecessary removal and disposal of thousands of tons of marginally contaminated soil.

Floyd|Snider received extensive documentation concerning the site, including previous investigations, Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) orders and correspondence, previous site cleanup, and boxes of filed records. The company's opinions were used in a series of mediations to support the client and an outcome favorable to the client was achieved. References are available upon request.
