Superfund Today: Focus on Superfund Resources

Getting Started

So, you want to find out what's going on...but where do you start? There are a lot of ways you can get the facts. Inside this issue of Superfund Today is a fold-out poster that tells you who to call, where to go, and what kinds of information you can get-over the phone, in writing, and through your computer. You can begin by calling or writing the person in your EPA regional office who coordinates cleanup efforts in your area. You can visit the place where information on the site in your area is kept. You can order written materials from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). If you have a computer and know how to use the Internet, there are many places to look for information electronically. If you are a teacher, there are also many ways you and your students can get information to use in your classroom.

Understanding the Technical Information

Are you confused by the words used by engineers and scientists working to clean up hazardous waste? Do you want to understand what the laws and regulations mean? Superfund provides grants for people in communities to hire technical advisors, go to training classes, and get supplies and equipment to help them understand what is going on at a site. Using the poster inside, you can find out how groups in communities affected by hazardous wastes sites can get the help they need from the Superfund program.
