Superfund Sites with New Construction Projects to Receive Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced plans to fund new cleanup projects at 49 Superfund sites on the National Priorities List using funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Until this historic investment, many of these were part of a backlog of Superfund sites with new construction projects awaiting funding. More than 60 percent of the sites are in historically underserved communities. Some of these sites have been waiting for cleanup funds for over four years.
