Making Decisions and Making a Difference in Superfund: Administrator's Emphasis List 2017-2021

This document provides a summary of the sites included on the Administrator’s Emphasis List since its inception. It identifies each site’s milestones and the progress that has been made to date. As contemplated by the Superfund Task Force, the Administrator’s Emphasis List has been recognized by communities, responsible parties and the Regions as a very effective tool in facilitating decisions and other actions at sites to accelerate cleanups that protect human health and the environment and provide opportunities to be returned to communities for their next use.
