In 2013, The Reynolds Group assisted a publicly traded technology Fortune 500 company in unwinding a lease obligation at one of its former West Coast facilities. This case was overseen by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board (LARWQCB) and involved cost allocation to resolve a chromium contamination matter as the high tech company relocated from the facility it had leased. The property owner believed the Fortune 500 Company lessee was responsible for leaving behind hexavalent chromium issues from its previous operations.
TRG was able to work through an amicable settlement among the property owner, the former tenant, and the LARWQCB. We design an assessment scope of work to meet all requirements and perform the required work. This led to the LARWQCB issuing a No Further Action Letter without the assignment of blame or a lawsuit, which is a positive outcome for all parties.
