Chemical Manufacturer – Wastewater Lagoons
SEA prepared an Expert Report and analysis of EPA Enforcement Policy, and was deposed in a coverage case involving closure of wastewater lagoons at a major chemical manufacturing facility in the Gulf Coast. Report concluded that the chemical company undertook closure in order to comply with various Federal and State regulatory deadlines, particularly the 1984 RCRA Amendment's requirement to retrofit or close unlined hazardous waste lagoons by November 8, 1988. Also provided guidance to coverage group during Deposition of plaintiff's experts and prepared cross-examination questions. Case was settled shortly after my Deposition in a manner favorable to the coverage group.
