polluter's liability


Explanation:
Low answer confidence since you failed to provide sufficient context (section of German source text).

According to Schulte, Lee, Paul (Real Estate Dictionary German-English, English-German), a "Handlungsstörer" is a "polluter" (which seems to fit your contamination context) or a "person actively responsible for a criminal act" (which does not seem to fit here).
