Waste Facility – Contamination to Third Parties
Source: Rockhill Environmental/NECC Newsletter
A class action lawsuit was filed by 45 claimants against a waste facility alleging they contributed to off-site contamination next to a waste disposal owned by the facility. The suit alleged the contamination migrated onto the claimants’ properties, contaminating their homes, crops, and livestock. The claim was settled in the high five figures for the waste facility’s defense costs in their Site Specific Pollution Liability Policy.
