About the Superfund Enforcement Directory (SFED)
The Superfund Enforcement Directory ("SFED" or "Directory") provides a single resource that identifies Headquarters and Regional EPA personnel, and their particular areas of expertise, who are involved in the site remediation enforcement process. (Note: Those people listed in SFED may also function in other roles not reflected in the Directory, and may have formal job titles not directly related to site remediation enforcement.)
One of the central functions of the PRP Search Enhancement Team is to encourage and support the sharing of information and coordination of activities among various EPA organizations that are involved in the site remediation enforcement process. Because people with experience and expertise in topics relevant to site remediation enforcement are spread throughout EPA Headquarters and the Regions, it is often difficult to know whom to contact for information about a particular subject.
If you have any questions or comments regarding the Enforcement Directory, please contact Nancy Deck at email@example.com.
For a more complete guide to SFED consult the "SFED "User's Manual."

Searching the Directory
The Superfund Enforcement Directory is a searchable contact list of EPA professionals who are involved in the site remediation enforcement process. The SFED enables you to search for EPA personnel by name, Region, PRP search enforcement subject, or PRP search enforcement title.
To begin searching, select "Search SFED" from the left sidebar.
Search by Name
The name fields allow you to search by name. Using the name fields, you can search for a person using all or part of his or her first or last name. Enter a complete or partial first and/or last name in the fields then click on the "Search Directory" button at the top or bottom of the page. Everyone matching the search values provided will be displayed.
Search by Region/HQ
The Region/HQ drop-down list enables you to search for a particular region. Using the region drop-down list, you can view a complete list of SFED contacts by region or search for a name within a region. To view all SFED contacts for a region or for HQ, select a region or HQ from the drop-down menu. Only one region can be selected at a time. To execute the search, click on the "Search Directory" button on the top or bottom of the page. All contacts in the selected region or HQ will be displayed.
Search by PRP Search Enforcement Subject
The subject checkboxes allow you to find individuals with knowledge/expertise in a particular subject area. To search by enforcement subject, select one or more subjects by clicking in the checkboxes. (To unselect a subject, remove the checkmark by clicking in the box.) To find a particular subject, click on the first letter of the appropriate subject in the alphabet bar or scroll down the page. Once a subject has been selected, you can find additional subjects by using the "Return to Top" links in each subject section or by scrolling. Once you have selected all the subjects you want, execute the search by clicking on the "Search Directory" button at the top or bottom of the page. Everyone with knowledge/expertise in any of the selected subject area(s) will be displayed.
Search by PRP Search Enforcement Title
The title checkboxes at the bottom of the Search page enable you to search for individuals by job title. To search by title, select one or more titles by clicking in the checkboxes. Once you have selected all the titles you want, execute the search by clicking on the "Search Directory" button at the top or bottom of the page. Everyone currently holding the selected title(s) will be displayed. Certain titles vary from region to region. Your search might be more conclusive if you search by subject. Note: At this time SFED includes primarily EPA staff. The directory will be expanded in the near future to include staff from state, tribal, and other organizations who are involved in the site remediation or PRP search enforcement process.
Your search results can be sorted in two ways from the results page:
- To sort alphabetically by last name: Click on the Name and Address heading.
- To sort contacts numerically by Region/HQ: Click on the Region heading.
