Title: "Environmental Contamination: A Case Study in the Purchase and Sale of Potentially Contaminated Lands"



Brief Summary of the Presentation:


This presentation is back by popular demand.  It will discuss some of the issues that may arise through the purchase of potentially contaminated


lands while navigating through an interactive case study of a potential commercial transaction.  Some of the issues that will be covered include:


1. Can/should the purchaser rely upon the historic environmental site assessment?


2. What types of reps and warranties should be inserted into the Purchase and Sale Agreement and how should they be backstopped?


3. Do the portions of the property that will remain as commercial development have the same remediation


requirements as the portions slated for residential development?


4. Have the remediation requirements changed since the 1990’s?


5. What protection does the acceptance by the Alberta Department of Environment and Parks of the environmental site assessment provide to your client?


6. Any concerns about the sandblasting that occurs on the site?


7. Any concerns about the use of the various solvents that occurs on the site?


8. Any concerns regarding groundwater?
