Environmental Forensics (CM I TBD)
October 6, 2011 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Environmental forensics is a multidisciplinary field with the goal of understanding how and when contamination occurred as well as who is responsible for the pollution. Environmental forensics investigations may involve identifying and apportioning responsibility among multiple parties, age-dating releases and/or determining exactly how a release occurred with reference to insurance or other contractual issues.
Determining the date when problems first began is important because it allows attorneys and courts to determine who is repsonsible for the cleanup, insurance companies to determine whether or not an environmental claim occurred during their policy periods and government officials to determine who is responsible for recouping expended government funds.
