Cleaning Up New Jersey Schools

By Michelle R. Davis — December 29, 2006 1 min read

The state of New Jersey is working overtime to collect money state officials feel it is owed to clean up public school sites and fix improperly constructed public school buildings. The Star-Ledger reports that New Jersey is suing an architectural firm and an engineering firm for $20 million, trying to recoup costs for structural and design defects on school projects across the country. This lawsuit comes on the heels of another school-related lawsuit filed earlier this month that seeks to reimburse the state for millions of dollars it paid out to clean up properties purchased for school sites and then later found to be contaminated.
