I'd be glad to discuss this in messages. In short, yes I have studied it and discuss it frequently. My partner has a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering. I've worked on sick building, toxic mold, ground contamination and other environmental litigation issues for over 15 years. Along with ground contamination comes strict liability. Translated: if you purchase land that is contaminated the government can sue you to clean it up. Even if the prior owner failed to disclose and you had no part in the contamination, under strict liability you are fully responsible.
