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.

Superfund Site Assessments

Since 1985, the Site Assessment Group of the Superfund Section has been contracting with the U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) through the use of cooperative agreements to perform Superfund Site Assessment activities.  Superfund Site Assessment work consists of discovery, evaluation, and nomination of contamination sites to the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) as defined in the Comprehensive Environmental Remediation, Compensation, and Liabilities Act (CERCLA).  Here is the link for a discussion of the Superfund Site Assessment process.
