Abstract

The cost of removing hazardous substances from drinking water sources or the cost of taking remedial action in the event of long-term source contamination may be recoverable through the federal Superfund—if the contamination is known to have occurred prior to December 1980 and the source has been threatened or affected at some time since then. Such claims must be filed before Dec. 11,1983. Provisions of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, descriptions of court rulings in connection with the act, and procedures for filing claims against those responsible for contamination are discussed.
