The EPA's Superfund program was established in 1980 to locate, investigate, and clean up hazardous waste sites throughout the United States. Nationally, EPA's Superfund program has located, analyzed and worked to clean up thousands of hazardous waste sites since 1980.

In New England, the Superfund program has carried out or is currently involved in the clean up of close to 700 such sites since the law went into effect.

Recovery Funding to Speed Up Superfund Clean Ups

Recovery.gov Recovery Act of 2009. The Recovery Act will direct additional dollars to help protect people and the environment from contamination at our worst sites by expediting the pace of cleanup so our land and environment will more quickly be ready to return to productive use.

Funding for site cleanup provides for construction jobs as well as future economic development as property is reused. It also helps to involve states, tribes, local communities and other partners to formulate plans for the future use of these once off-limit properties.
