Current NPL Updates: New Proposed and New Final NPL Sites
The National Priorities List is updated periodically, as mandated by CERCLA (CERCLA Overview). EPA publishes the list of NPL sites in the Federal Register. The current update, May 24, 2013, proposes the addition of nine sites and adds nine sites to the NPL.
The Superfund program publishes documents with each rulemaking adding or proposing sites to the National Priorities List (NPL). Notification and listing of the sites are published in the Federal Register.
Depending on the action being taken by EPA, the Federal Register notice describes either the addition of sites to the NPL (final rule) or the proposal to add sites to the NPL (proposed rule). Notices for both actions provide a list of sites; background information about the NPL process, including information about the Superfund rules; and other site actions. The proposed rule notice also provides information about submitting comments on the sites proposed.
