This is a list of Superfund sites in West Virginia 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 contamination.[1] These locations are known as Superfund sites, and are placed on the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL guides the Environmental Protection Agency in "determining which sites warrant further investigation" for environmental remediation.[2] As of March 26, 2010, there were 9 Superfund sites on the National Priorities List in West Virginia.[2] No additional sites are currently proposed for entry on the list.[2] Two sites have been cleaned up and removed from the list.[2]
