Unraveling the often complex story
of a site's chemical usage, waste
disposal, ownership, and succession
is a first and necessary step in
identifying existing viable parties
who may be responsible for site cleanup
costs. I have nearly thirty years of
experience in conducting archival record
searches designed expressly for PRP
identification and tracing. I have
tailored many successful, efficient
searches in order to obtain pertinent
evidence regardless of the nature of
the contamination or the era of site
operation. Off-prints of my published
essays and chapters on this "paper trail"
aspect of environmental forensics
may be made available on request.
