SBR Technologies Solution

Providing expert consulting services, SBR Technologies was retained by the PRP Group to assist in establishing the liability of as many as twelve third-party defendants for response costs incurred at the Cross Brothers Superfund Site. The Cross Brothers site was a pail and drum recycling facility from 1969 until 1980, when the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency closed the site due to widespread contamination of soil and groundwater.

The scope of the services provided by SBR Technologies included: review of discovery file, including depositions, RI/FS reports, site historical documents and other pertinent information; reconstruction of pail and drum recycling operations and waste disposal practices used at the site; evaluation of the physical and chemical characteristics of the waste contaminants found at the site; and identification of the sources of these contaminants.
