Contaminated Media, Human Health, and Environmental Effects
At Superfund sites, various environmental media, like sediments, ground water, soil and air, have become contaminated. This contamination may lead to adverse effects on the health of people, animals, and plants at or near the sites. This Web page contains information regarding Superfund research and technical support resources.
