The goal of Post Construction Completion activities is to ensure that Superfund response actions provide for the long-term protection of human health and the environment. EPA's Post Construction Completion activities also involve optimizing remedies to increase effectiveness and/or reduce cost without sacrificing long-term protection of human health and the environment.

Post Construction Completion Topics
Construction Completions (CC) - Information on Superfund sites where physical construction of all cleanup actions are complete, all immediate threats have been addressed, and all long-term threats are under control.
Long-Term Response Actions (LTRA) - Information on Superfund-financed cleanup activities intended to restore ground or surface water to a level that assures protection of human health and the environment (e.g., restoring a contaminated aquifer to drinking water quality).
Institutional Controls (ICs) - Information related to various administrative and legal controls that help minimize the potential for human exposure to contamination by ensuring appropriate land or resource use.
Five-Year Reviews - Information on periodic reviews which are generally required by Superfund law or policy when a cleanup action does not allow for unrestricted use and unlimited exposure at the site.
Remedy Optimization - Information on efforts to optimize remedy performance and cost effectiveness at Superfund-financed ground water pump and treat (P&T) remedies.
National Priority List (NPL) Deletions - Information on how Superfund sites, or portions of sites, are deleted from the NPL once all response actions are complete and all cleanup goals have been achieved.
Site Reuse - Information on how the Superfund program is working with communities and other partners to return hazardous waste sites to safe and productive use without adversely affecting the remedy.
