The Reynolds Group’s client had an open case at the San Diego Site Assessment/Mitigation Unit since 1991. When TRG was contracted as the environmental consultant of record in 2008, the case had already been transferred to the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board (SDRWQCB). TRG helped their client gain access to the Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund (USTCF), which reimbursed them for previous costs associated with assessment and source removal. TRG then completed the assessment of the contamination at the site and aggressively pursued case closure from the SDRWQCB arguing there was no need for active cleanup at the site.
In less than two and a half years, TRG was able to obtain funding and close a case that had lingered for well over a decade. All work performed by TRG was within USTCF cost guidelines and was fully reimbursed by the USTCF.
