Current NPL Updates: New Proposed and New Final NPL Sites
The National Priorities List is updated periodically, as mandated by CERCLA (CERCLA Overview). The EPA publishes the list of NPL sites in the Federal Register. The EPA will publish a rule in the Federal Register on May 24, 2013, proposing to add nine sites and adding nine sites to the NPL. As a result of sequestration, Friday, May 24 is a designated furlough day for EPA employees. This website will be updated on May 28, following the furlough day and holiday.
The Superfund program publishes documents with each rulemaking adding or proposing sites to the National Priorities List (NPL). Notification and listing of the sites are published in the Federal Register.
Depending on the action being taken by the EPA, the Federal Register notice describes either the addition of sites to the NPL (final rule) or the proposal to add sites to the NPL (proposed rule). Notices for both actions provide a list of sites; background information about the NPL process, including information about the Superfund rules; and other site actions. The proposed rule notice also provides information about submitting comments on the sites proposed.
