Published Article: Proactive Evaluation of PRP Status at Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites

Posted on February 24, 2016

There are two key ways to avoid the status of potentially responsible party (PRP) at future Superfund sites:

  • Manage all waste with appropriate care
  • Perform appropriate inquiries into the history of new properties prior to acquisition

Corporations can become PRPs because of their ownership and/or operation of historically contaminated property, their historical waste management practices, or their historical disposal of hazardous substances at non-owned disposal sites, such as landfills.

A team of experts at Roux Associates wrote a paper, “Proactive Evaluation of PRP Status at Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites” that was published in the Environmental Claims Journal, to provide a method by which insurance companies, waste producers, and property owners can proactively evaluate their potential liability associated with environmental response action costs at contaminated sites.
