Unexcused delays in Superfund or other required remediation work can result in significant civil or stipulated penalties and adversely affect company relationships with regulatory agencies. But force majeure provisions, agency guidelines, and practical approaches are available to cope with these kinds of COVID-related delays. In this session, the speakers will walk through the key issues and available tools to resolve these problems and minimize company risks. They will also provide tips on how to plan for future disruptions that may result in delays of required remediation work.
