Abstract: A growing number of environmental engineers are conducting studies to evaluate the competence of waste disposal operations. Waste generators that rely on these studies in their selection of a disposal contractor may be able to hold the engineer liable for problems, despite immunity granted under the new Superfund amendments. Clean up contractors and engineers also may be responsible for damages under state laws, though they may be indemnified against federal laws.
