    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 since in 2010, Susan analyzes environmental risks and liabilities to protect clients in all types of transactions. She has also led numerous remediation efforts, pursuing and obtaining regulatory 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, as well as obtaining development permits for construction over closed municipal solid waste landfills. She has also counseled clients on navigating state and federal superfund actions and information requests, potentially responsible party (PRP) group agreements, and agency or PRP cleanups. In addition, Susan works with clients to identify and secure other risk mitigants including prospective purchaser or brownfield agreements and environmental insurance policies.
