Susan Rainey uses her experience as a former project manager in the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) to assist clients in evaluating and addressing environmental issues. Named in Chambers USA for Environmental Law in 2010-2013, Ms. Rainey's experience includes analyzing environmental risks and liabilities and drafting environmental provisions of transaction documents to protect clients in all types of transactions. Transactions include real estate acquisitions and sales, lending, foreclosures, and corporate transactions in Texas and more than twenty other states, as well as analyzing environmental insurance availability and coverages. She has also assisted clients in redeveloping brownfield sites, conducting environmental assessments and remediation, pursuing closure through voluntary cleanup, corrective action, brownfields and other regulatory programs in states across the country, and seeking out funding, reimbursement or tax credits where available. These environmental assessments and remediation projects have included work with chlorinated solvents; petroleum and underground storage tanks (USTs); soil, soil gas, and groundwater contamination; indoor air vapor intrusion risks; vapor mitigation systems and vapor barriers; asbestos; lead and lead based paint; and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In Texas, she has worked with clients to obtain Municipal Setting Designations (MSDs) to achieve regulatory closure through the VCP and Corrective Action Section. She has also counseled clients on navigating state and federal superfund information requests, potentially responsible party (PRP) group agreements, and agency or PRP cleanups.
Ms. Rainey frequently assists clients with commercial and residential property condition and building management issues, including indoor air, mold, radon, asbestos containing materials (ACM), and lead based paint (LBP) assessment, mitigation, and abatement, and counsels clients on managing tenant relations regarding these issues. Her experience includes environmental regulatory work, including permit transfers, responding to notices of violation, arranging for and evaluating environmental audits, assisting with abatement plans, reviewing operations and maintenance plans (O&M Plans), and ensuring compliance with a broad range of environmental regulatory requirements at both the state and federal levels.
