EPA Environmental Dataset Gateway


Open/Close section Identification Information
Title: NPLPoints
Abstract: This data layer contains point locations of sites on the Superfund National Priority List throughout US EPA Region 3. Congress passed the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA, also known as "Superfund") in response to a growing national concern about the release of hazardous substances from abandoned waste sites. This point location data was extracted from an EPA Database by US EPA Region 3 personnel in the Hazardous Site Clean-up Division.
Purpose: This point data layer is intended to display all of the sites on the National Priority List in US EPA Region 3; also known as Superfund Sites. The data layer also contains information about the stage of remediation of each site. One of the primary uses of this data layer is to cartographically display the stage, or phase, of remediation of each Superfund Site.
