Corrective Action Programs around the Nation

EPA, states and territories work with facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes to investigate and clean up hazardous releases at their facilities in accordance with state and federal requirements. States and territories are authorized by EPA to lead Corrective Action Programs if EPA determines that a state’s program is equivalent to the federal program. EPA leads cleanups with federal cleanup orders or at the state’s request. Corrective actions are largely enforced through statutory authorities established by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
