EPA to Use Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funds to Clean Up Communities
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $3.5 billion in cleaning up Superfund sites and reinstates Superfund taxes, making it one of the largest investments in American history to address legacy pollution in communities across the country.
EPA’s Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of the nation’s most contaminated land and responding to environmental emergencies, oil spills and natural disasters. To protect public health and the environment, the Superfund program focuses on making a visible and lasting difference in communities, ensuring that people can live and work in healthy, vibrant places.
