    Track 6: Liability and Enforcement
    Critical to every successful brownfields redevelopment project is a robust site assessment that identifies various risks that could give rise to liability, change project costs, or impact property end use. Brownfields redevelopment is further challenged by emerging issues not yet fully understood, such as PFAS and other chemicals of concern, and climate risks, including coastal resiliency, floodplains, and water availability. This panel of lawyers will discuss how to assess, measure, and manage these emerging risks together with the traditional risks inherent in brownfields redevelopment and will examine how ASTM and EPA are reacting to this evolution, with emphasis on how public private partnerships and thoughtful collaboration between regulators, developers, and other stakeholders can be optimized throughout the process to ensure project success.
