Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act

For anyone looking to develop polluted land or those dealing with a contamination issue on their premises, it’s important to understand the environmental laws and how they guide the plan of action. At Benner & Boon, we are experienced environmental attorneys in San Diego, and we have in depth knowledge about both the state and federal regulations pertaining to the acquisition and remediation of high-risk properties.

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) was enacted by Congress in 1980 to provide federal authority to regulatory agencies to order the investigation and remediation investigate of hazardous waste site that may endanger the environment or public health. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and local regulators work through CERCLA and related enumerated authority to order property and business owners to investigate and initiate cleanup efforts across the country.

Many businesses and land developers in California come across environmental regulations, and if this describes your situation, you’ve come to the right place. We have worked with many of the regulatory agencies and insurers in the area, and are intimately familiar with CERCLA and how it can impact your company’s future growth and property value. If you want to stay in the clear when it comes to environmental regulations, you can count on us to counsel you on appropriate actions and to work on your behalf with negotiations between state, federal, and local authorities. CERCLA was designed to grant authority for the identification, monitoring, and disaster response needed in superfund sites, and when those laws affect your business, come to Benner & Boon.

When you need help navigating CERCLA and other complex environmental laws, get in touch with our firm today and request your free initial consultation.
