Abstract

The remediation of highly contaminated industrial sites is customarily conducted under RCRA or CERCLA. Because of a desire for less draconian measures and more expeditious cleanups, those involved with these contaminated sites began to look for alternatives to the federal programs. One such alternative, the negotiated settlement, was used at the General Electric/Housatonic River Site in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. This Comment argues that the negotiated settlement is the best alternative for implementing remediation at the General Electric site because it will ensure that the cleanup is conducted safely and efficiently and that the site can be quickly redeveloped.
