Managing a Groundwater Contamination Incident

July 25, 2012

In our recent webinar series, we took a close look at widespread groundwater contamination - one of the most significant litigation risks faced by companies involved in hydraulic fracturing.

Responding to allegations of groundwater contamination is enormously complex. Such allegations involve numerous parties and government agencies with potentially divergent and competing interests. Managing these interests requires detailed analysis and counsel from the outset.

Topics discussed included:

  • Managing responses to regulatory authorities
  • Public relations strategies
  • Dealing with private party lawsuits (class actions and individual suits)
  • Remediation options and obstacles
  • Identifying responsible parties and allocation disputes
