EGLE implements the Superfund Program in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Superfund law (the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 or CERCLA) provides a federal "Superfund" and enforcement authorities to clean up hazardous waste sites as well as spills and other releases of pollutants and contaminants into the environment.
