MTBE Cleanup Costs

The Association for Environmental Health and Sciences (AEHS) issued a press release yesterday about a soon-to-be published ENSR study on the cost to cleanup all MTBE sites nationwide. "By trending the EPA confirmed release data for the past 20 years, evaluating the history of nationwide cleanup costs, and then incorporating forecasts for streamlined technologies and cleanup methods, a national total cost of MTBE remediation over the coming 30 years is predicted to be in the range of $1 to $3 billion," according to AEHS.
