Emerging Areas of Concern


Whether dealing with the familiar or unfamiliar, we can help you separate fear from fact, property damage from environmental pollution, and reasonable remediation costs from inappropriate cleanup expenditures.

Steady pressure from environmental watchdog organizations has increased public awareness and concern in several high-profile areas.

The following areas of activity are emerging areas of concern:

  • Hydraulic fracturing is being blamed for both earthquake damage to property and pollution of water supplies.
  • Mountainous piles of coal ash are seen as threats to groundwater and surface water.
  • Mining waste management practices are coming under close scrutiny for allegedly damaging the environment, including water bodies, with radioactivity and heavy metals contamination.
