EPA Begins Five-Year Reviews of Superfund Sites

Agency will assess risks at 45 Southeast contaminated abandoned sites

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that its five-year review evaluations are underway for Superfund sites in the Southeast. Superfund sites are areas identified to contain large amounts of hazardous waste that have usually leaked into the soil through spills or mismanagement. These reviews will identify issues affecting 45 sites on the Superfund national priority list and identify effective clean-up methods to use in the future.

“The Southeast Region will benefit tremendously from the full restoration of Superfund sites, which can become valuable parts of the community landscape,” said EPA Region 4 Administrator Daniel Blackmon. “The Five-Year Review evaluations ensure that remedies put in place to protect public health remain effective over time.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Regan as he oversees the five year reviews evaluating the superfund sites.
  • For EPA officials as they address the potential pollutants and hazardous threats in the U.S.
