New Jersey Environmental Attorney Daniel McKillop to Discuss the EPA Adding 19 Miles of the Hackensack River to the Superfund National Priorities List in a CIANJ Virtual Event

On Wednesday, October 12, 2022, Scarinci Hollenbeck Partner Dan McKillop will present “Hackensack River Designated A Superfund Site – What It Means to Business” in a virtual event hosted by the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ).

The event will cover concerns regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s recent announcement that it is adding the southern 19 miles of the Hackensack River in Bergen and Hudson counties to the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL). The “Superfund” designation is reserved for the most heavily polluted sites across the country and notably, the EPA will now conduct additional testing to determine the extent of the contamination and will move forward to identify “potentially responsible parties” (PRPs) who contributed to the contamination of the river.

Businesses who may be encompassed within the PRP categories can benefit from this event by gaining a better understanding of the Superfund process, assessing their potential liability, and learning how to communicate with the EPA regarding these matters.
