2018 Region 4 Superfund Annual Report

In FY 2018, the program maintained its commitment to partnering with stakeholders to develop and implement innovative cleanup strategies as well as returning sites to productive and beneficial use. Region 4 achieved several nationally targeted major milestones, emphasizing the vitality and strength of the Superfund program and its mission. In this year’s report, you will learn more about our work:

  • Integrating EPA’s FY 2018-2022 Strategic Plan.
  • Furthering partnerships with our state counterparts and local governments in identifying sites for expedited cleanup activities.
  • Stepping up efforts to return sites to productive use and deleting sites from the National Priorities List (NPL).
  • Enhancing emergency response and preparedness efforts using innovative tools, comprehensive training sessions and rigorous exercises.
  • Using best-available science practices and cutting-edge techniques in remedy decisions and cleanup efforts.
  • Continuing implementation of Superfund Task Force priorities within the program.
