Host Teresa Wilke speaks with Nick Godfrey, Principal and National Program Manager- Due Diligence at Environmental Works, Inc. and Andrew Brought, Environmental Attorney with Spencer Fane LLP, about environmental cleanup, especially in the greater Kansas City area.
Federal regulations have committed us to safe, complete cleanup of the environmental legacy of more than five decades of wholesale dumping of hazardous waste. Environmental remediation is the process of physically removing, treating, or isolating pollutants in air, soil and water. Environmental cleanup laws may contain specific requisite remediation protocols, or may contain standards and processes by which a regulatory agency may determine an appropriate remedy. It helps to know what is happening in our neighborhoods. Even in these times of federal deregulation, there is no question that health damaging pollution is still wrong and that public action is a vital tool to be used to correct that injustice.
