Contaminants can be anywhere – in our water, our playgrounds, our homes, and the places we work.
Water is one of our most precious resources, but it can quickly become a problem if not cared for properly. Water pollution and contamination are threats to our health, safety, property and infrastructure. We work to bring these problems to light. If not handled properly, the environmental damage can be immediately devastating and catastrophic long term. If you think you have polluted water, you need someone experienced taking on your environmental case.
Leaking Underground Storage Tanks Cause Gasoline Contamination To Ground WateR
A construction company in Durham, NC discovered that the ground water under their property was contaminated. They suspected it was caused by an underground leak of diesel fuel from the adjacent trucking terminal.
Our attorneys called on hydrologists to trace the source of the contamination, and prove that it did, in fact, come from the trucking terminal. Thanks in part to the expert testimony, the trucking company was required to purchase our client’s property for fair market value, plus a premium to provide them with the means to rebuild in a suitable location.
