There are thousands of contaminated environmental sites across the country because of irresponsible handling and/or dumping of hazardous waste. These sites include manufacturing facilities, processing plants, landfills, and mining sites.

In response to toxic waste dumps earning national media attention for the dangers they posed, Congress established the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act in 1980. This legislation is better known as “Superfund,” and it allows the EPA to clean up contaminated sites. It also forces the parties responsible for the contamination to either perform cleanups or reimburse the government for EPA-led cleanup work. When no viable responsible party exists, the law provides EPA the funds and authority to clean up these sites.

According to the EPA, Superfund’s goals are to:

  • Protect human health and the environment by cleaning up polluted sites.
  • Make responsible parties pay for cleanup work.
  • Involve communities in the Superfund process.
  • Return Superfund sites to productive use.
