The City of Santa Monica has had some of their drinking water wells shut down due to contamination. The Reynolds Group’s Client required multiple aspects of environmental legal services. In one aspect, TRG’s client was being pursued by the U.S. EPA for having disposed de minimis wastes in a landfill that subsequently became designated as a Superfund site. The U.S. EPA sought reimbursement for large costs associated with the de minimus waste. TRG prepared technical historical documentation and the environmental attorney was able to resolve the matter in a de minimus manner. Concurrently, the City of Santa Monica threatened action against TRG’s client for potential diminution of value due to a contamination emanating from its clients site onto the City of Santa Monica’s property. Working with the environmental attorney, TRG’s team was able to placate the City of Santa Monica’s concerns.
