Current NPL Updates: New Proposed NPL Sites and New NPL Sites

The National Priorities List (NPL) is updated periodically, as mandated by CERCLA (CERCLA Overview). The EPA publishes the list of NPL sites in the Federal Register. The EPA  published a Final rule in the Federal Register on May 15, 2019, that added seven sites to the NPL. The proposed rule is expected to be published separately from this Final rule.

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 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.

New NPL Sites

The Superfund (About Superfund) program added seven sites to the NPL in a rulemaking  published in the May 15, 2019 Federal Register. A total of 1,344 uncontrolled hazardous waste sites are listed (National Priorities List (NPL) Sites) on the NPL as of this rulemaking. General information about site location, operations, contaminants, and site investigation activities is provided by the NPL Site Narrative at Listing. The HRS Documentation Record provides in-depth information about each site that is scored using the HRS (Introduction to the HRS). The documents provides the basis for EPA's decision to propose sites to the NPL.
