Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act

Supporting superfund investigations across the U.S.

ERS personnel bring considerable experience working on state and federal Superfund sites throughout the country. We have performed, supported, and/or produced remedial investigation and feasibility studies (RI/FS), human and ecological risk assessments, remedial action plans (RAP), records of decision (ROD), remedial design plans, and remediation completion reports.

We understand that Superfund sites typically involve increased public scrutiny and media exposure. We have investigated and/or remediated a variety of sites, such as U.S. military installations (Army, Navy, Air Force), U.S. DOE facilities, industry (manufacturing, petrochemical, wood-treating, high-tech, plating, etc.), and mines (gold, uranium).

Chemicals of concern range from organics (e.g., chlorinated solvents and pesticides), to metals (e.g., mercury, lead, arsenic), to radioactive substances (e.g., alpha, beta, gamma emitters), to chemical warfare agents and unexploded ordinance (UXO). ERS also prepares NCP-consistent documents for the investigation, remediation, and closure of properties transacted under the Polanco Act and early-transferred Base Re-alignment and Closure (BRAC) sites.

Given our experience with natural resource damage assessments, we provide critical analysis of NRDA liability in parallel with the investigation and remediation of chemical impacts. In many cases, NRDA liabilities may represent by far the larger financial liability.
