An ELI and Beveridge & Diamond PC Co-Sponsored Webinar


Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Superfund program with analysis of its past, present, and future.

On December 11, 1980, President Jimmy Carter signed into law the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, aka “Superfund.” Forty years later, Superfund cleanups continue in full stride across the country.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Superfund program, the Environmental Law Institute and Beveridge & Diamond organized two in-depth panel discussions of the past, present, and future of the Superfund program with former EPA and DOJ officials and private practitioners.


The Future of Superfund: Has the Mission Expanded, and Will It Be Permanent?

A moderated panel discussion among former and current senior EPA officials – who have significant private sector experience as well – on what parties should expect from the coming decades of CERCLA in terms of its longevity, its priorities, and ongoing major conflicts over its implementation. Key topics include how the remedial action program has been transforming over time, how the brownfields program has affected the Superfund program, the ongoing evolution of EPA-State relationships, and whether a remedial action, like the James Bond franchise, is forever.
