Lawsuit Alleges Defects in HDPE Liner
In the complaint, HRK seeks damages based on several points, including defects of the HDPE liner and known pre-existing subgrade instabilities of the stack system those liners were installed upon. HRK also alleges that Ardaman & Associates—the engineering consulting firm retained by FDEP prior to HRK’s purchase of the site—and Nadim F. Fuleihan—Senior VP and principal engineer for Ardaman—would have had reasonable knowledge of those points before dredge material was pumped into the old gypsum stack system.
