Brownfield Sites

The former Casper, WY refinery, located on the banks of the North Platte River, was the first RCRA site to achieve closure under state law. CenturyPacific managed the community-negotiated settlement of litigation, which resulted in the cleanup and closure of disposal facilities at the former refinery.
