List of Superfund sites in Texas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Superfund sites in Texas designated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) environmental law. The CERCLA federal law of 1980 authorized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a list of polluted locations requiring a long-term response to clean up hazardous material contaminations.[1] These locations are known as Superfund sites, and are placed on the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL guides the EPA in "determining which sites warrant further investigation" for environmental remediation.[2] As of March 26, 2010, there were 48 Superfund sites on the National Priorities List in Texas.[2] Two new sites have been proposed for inclusion on the list.[2] Ten sites have been cleaned up and removed from the list.[2]
