Decision (ROD)-of-the-Year Contest
Begun in 1999, The ROD-of-the-Year is selected by a panel of Headquarters and Regional EPA staff. Selection is based on clear documentation that is consistent with the Superfund Program's policy and regulations and is not based on an evaluation of the selected remedy. Winning RODs and superior writing collections are presented on this Web page.
