EPA Releases Last Round of Hazmat Cleanup Funding

The final installment supports work at 25 superfund sites.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its final installment of hazmat cleanup funding under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, allocating $1 billion to continue improving 25 high-profile chemical waste sites.

These sites represent some of the most polluted areas in land designated as part of the Superfund cleanup program, a law created in 1980 to hold companies financially accountable for industry pollution. The state of New Jersey has the highest number of Superfund sites in the nation, and U.S. Representative Frank Pallone commended the cleanup program being put back into law.

“Reinstating that Superfund tax is really only about basic fairness that corporate polluters, not taxpayers, should have to pay to clean up the messes that they created,” Congressman Pallone said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Regan and members of the EPA as they seek to ensure the cleaning of polluted sites.
  • For members of Congress as they consider environmental funding for the 2024 fiscal year.
