George Lopez is retired after working twenty years with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Reading this [post #60], here is what gets me. During all of the countless meetings between the owners, contractors, city, county, and state people that Councilperson Callahan mentions, why didn’t anybody ask one simple question ” Is dust damage covered by the contractor’s liability insurance?” The answer would be “No, only accidental discharges are covered (and this could hardly be called “accidental”) which brings us to the next question. “Why won’t the insurers cover it?” ITS BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHATS IN THE DUST! The risk is too great.
