What is Superfund?

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of the United States’ most contaminated land. For the last 35+ years, the Superfund Cleanup Process has protected communities across the United States by responding to environmental emergencies, remediating oil spills, and addressing toxic and hazardous waste contamination. The Superfund program also addresses radioactive contamination and will work with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy to decommission and decontaminate certain sites.
