Insurance Support, Superfund

Portland Harbor Superfund Site

Various Insurance Carriers; Oregon

OBJECTIVES

Roux was retained as a technical expert regarding environmental damages resulting from historical and ongoing operations at over 70 properties within a Superfund site along the Lower Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. For this project, Roux has evaluated hundreds of million of dollars in site investigation costs, upland remediation costs, and estimated future remediation costs for both upland properties and in-river sediment. Roux experts have prepared expert reports, provided deposition testimony, attended mediation sessions, performed research at Oregon DEQ file repositories, and advised clients regarding likely environmental remediation strategies at shipyards, MGP sites, chemical plants, and manufacturing sites. In many cases, our clients have been able to successfully settle claims with their policyholders based on the “real-world” analysis and cost estimates provided by Roux experts.
