Wyndham Hotel, Philadelphia

Robert D. Fox and Kate Campbell, partners with the environmental, energy, litigation, safety and land use law firm of Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP (“MGKF”) located just outside Philadelphia, PA, will participate in the “Sediment and PRP Summit” presented by EHS Support. This program will take place on September 22 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm EST at the Wyndham Hotel in Philadelphia. For more information and to register, visit

Campbell’s panel entitled, “The Evolution of CERCLA Megasites” will introduce the concept that sediment sites are the new CERCLA mega-sites.  The panelists will offer their perspectives on how CERCLA practice has changed at sites including compositions of PRPs, cleanup costs, availability of technology, and allocation and cost recovery strategies.  They will also weigh in on how major CERCLA decisions have impacted the legal landscape and litigation challenges facing CERCLA mega-sites.  This program will run from 11:00 am – noon.

Robb Fox will participate on the hour-long panel on “Perspectives on Common Challenges at Sediment Remediation Sites” that will start at 3:45 pm.  The presenters will offer their insights on common challenges at sediment sites such as the law requiring more certainty than science often allows, controlling costs, managing human health and environmental risks while dredging, and addressing non-CERCLA components in contaminated sediments sites such as pathogens, habitat loss/modification, odor and aesthetics.
