"Neither Waste Management nor MIMC has been formally served with this lawsuit, so it is not possible to discuss as yet.
"MIMC is a corporation that no longer operates but more than four decades ago contracted with a nearby paper mill to dispose of paper mill waste for a period of nine months at the San Jacinto River site. Waste Management was not affiliated with MIMC during that period, never operated MIMC, never owned the San Jacinto River Waste Site property and was never involved in disposal there.
"Disposal operations that occurred at the San Jacinto River Waste pits historically - dating back to the mid-1960s - took place according to disposal practices common during that period and were conducted under appropriate governmental supervision at the time.
"Major remediation efforts at the site are currently under way via the U.S. EPA's Superfund process."
