Feuds Among EPA, Companies Delay Cleanup of Contaminated HarborRead Time: 1 min
Environmental attorney Michael Blumenthal (Cleveland) was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article on the tug of war between the U.S. EPA and the companies paying for cleanup over the scale and cost of the cleanup at Portland Harbor, a key international shipping port in Oregon and one of the country’s most toxic sites.
The EPA’s Remedial Action Plan for the Portland, Oregon Superfund site is headed for judicial review as a group of potentially responsible parties contend the plan is arbitrary and capricious.
“If a court agrees the EPA’s chosen remedy is ‘arbitrary and capricious,’ that remedy could be reversed,” said Michael.
