Superfund at 40: Superfund Reform Efforts, Past and Present

A virtual panel discussion with the lead EPA and U.S. DOJ staff for the 1986 Superfund amendments

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, Beveridge & Diamond and the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) are hosting in-depth discussions of the past, present, and future of the Superfund program with former EPA and DOJ officials and private practitioners.

Please join us on October 26 for "Superfund Reform Efforts, Past and Present," a panel discussion with the lead EPA and U.S. DOJ staff for the 1986 Superfund amendments, covering both past CERCLA reform efforts and the current status of CERCLA at 40 years.
