Reduces the risk of pollution cleanup cost overruns by providing insurance
coverage for excess cleanup costs when the actual cost exceeds the original
estimate by more than some established percentage, such as 130 percent. That
part of the percentage that exceeds 100 percent represents a built-in "buffer"
before coverage is triggered under the policy. The size of the buffer will depend
on the underwriter's confidence in the estimate.
