The TCE Revolution and Its Permanent Impact on Environmental Due Diligence
Following decades of studies, scrutiny and debate, the U.S. EPA updated its TCE’s toxicity profile in the IRIS database, dramatically lowering the toxicity value. For transactional due diligence, this more stringent limit has important implications, including markedly more extensive and expensive cleanup processes. Adding to the confusion is the significant variability in how regulators are using the updated TCE toxicity profile when making closure decisions at contaminated properties. It is critical for environmental professionals to stay abreast of the how TCE guidance is being interpreted and applied across the country.
Join experienced EDR professional David Gillay, Partner and Chair of Brownfields & Environmental Transactional Diligence Practice Areas, Barnes & Thornburg LLP, and EDR expert Dr. Michael Dourson, Ph.D., Alliance for Risk Assessment, for a can't-miss web event.
This timely webinar will bring together an attorney and a national subject matter expert to address the various impacts of TCE’s toxicity update on transactional due diligence. This panel will help EPs answer the following questions:
- Does TCE in groundwater constitute a VEC and/or a REC?
- How should an EP manage variability in TCE standards in multi-state transactions?
- How can an EP take steps to minimize exposure to potential liability?
- How can an EP make sense of the science and available guidance?
- How should an EP communicate potential risks associated with TCE to clients?
