Superfund

Superfund is the Federal government's program to clean up the nation's uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. The Superfund program has located and analyzed tens of thousands of hazardous waste sites, protected people and the environment from contamination at the worst sites, and involved others in cleanup. The most contaminated sites are put on a "National Priority List" which then have the highest priority for hazardous waste site clean up.
