Active facilities that generate hazardous waste are often regulated by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or RCRA. These facilities have special needs and requirements in complying with environmental regulations. RCRA facilities often have problems with contamination that resulted from historical releases or accidental spills on the site.

Sites that are no longer operating as industrial facilities, but have lingering environmental issues related to past operations are often regulated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act also referred to at times as Superfund.

Each of these types of facilities has unique and often complicated regulatory requirements, and usually has challenging technical issues as well. Riverfront professionals have experience helping clients negotiate agreements with regulators, develop and implement work plans, and address environmental problems at these types of sites. These sites are often candidates for Subsurface Investigations, and Risk-Based Corrective Action.
