Re: old phone books, etc. - many consultants will review reverse directories that are available; they can look up the address and find out what businesses or individuals were located there (up to a certain point in time). You should also know there is a small subset of consultants who specialize in historical research related to Superfund sites. They will consult local libraries, historical archives, etc. in a search for additional information about a site, primarily to identify additional responsible parties. This can also be done by a private investigator, but these specialized firms are quite capable. The next step often involves corporate history since many companies have merged, been sold, changed names and so on. The level of inquiry is always dictated by the need: are the "stakes" high (i.e. lots of contamination), are additional financial resources needed, etc.
