Superfund: Post Construction Completion

Post construction completion (PCC) activities make sure Superfund response actions provide for the long-term protection of human health and the environment. PCC is the term used for several activities generally undertaken at sites following the construction of response actions. These activities include:

  • operation and maintenance (O&M) and long-term response actions (LTRAs),
  • institutional controls,
  • five-year reviews, and
  • site deletion from the National Priorities List (NPL).

Construction completions and remedial action project completions are also covered below as related sub-topics.

The Close Out Procedures for National Priorities List Sites describes the process for accomplishing remedial action project completion, construction completion, site completion, partial deletion and site deletion for NPL sites. The Guidance for Management of Superfund Remedies in Post Construction provides comprehensive guidance for managing superfund remedial actions during post construction.
