Population Surrounding 1,857 Superfund Sites
Superfund sites exist in thousands of communities across the United States ranging from remote to large urban settings. Many of them are located in economically distressed communities.
To help describe who benefits from our Superfund Program cleanup work, EPA collected data on the population living within three and one mile(s) of a Superfund site. These sites include Superfund and Federal Facility final and proposed National Priorities List (NPL) sites, as well as non-NPL Superfund Alternative Agreement sites.
