EPA Begins Reviews of 24 New England Superfund Sites

Boston – EPA plans to conduct comprehensive reviews of site cleanups at 24 National Priorities List Sites (Superfund Sites), including two Federal Facilities, across New England by performing required Five-Year Reviews of sites. The Superfund program, a federal program established by Congress in 1980, investigates and cleans up the most complex, uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste sites in the country and endeavors to facilitate activities to return them to productive use.

"Under Administrator Pruitt, EPA has a renewed focus to make progress on Superfund sites across the country," said EPA regional administrator Alexandra Dunn. "We are dedicated to addressing risk at sites, which is why it's important for us to conduct these regular reviews of previously completed cleanups to make sure these remedies remain protective of human health and the environment."
