Superfund Site Information

Superfund Site Information contains general information on sites across the nation and U.S. territories including location, contaminants and cleanup actions taken. Use this tool to find information on sites being assessed under the Superfund program, hazardous waste sites and potential hazardous waste sites

National Priorities List (NPL) sites (i.e., sites proposed to the NPL, currently on the final NPL or deleted from the final NPL) are displayed in a standardized site progress profile format. Each profile includes information such as the current status of cleanup efforts, what cleanup milestones have been reached and how much liquid and solid-based media have been treated. Additionally, the profiles include links to information found on EPA Regional Web sites. All information is presented in easy to understand, non-technical language.

A search of sites that have been archived from the inventory of active sites can also be performed. At the top of the Search page, select the "Archived Sites" radio button.

Site Documents

A variety of documents are written during the cleanup and assessment of sites addressed under the Superfund program. The online collection of Site Documents ranges from preliminary assessments, written during the early stages of reviewing a site for contamination, to Five-Year Reviews, written after the remedial action (treatment) is implemented. Many of the documents can be searched on keyword (such as a contaminant or remediation type), or other criteria.
