The EPA will conduct comprehensive reviews of completed cleanup work at 14 National Priority List (NPL) Superfund sites, including three federal facilities, in New England this year. The sites, located in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, will undergo a legally required Five-Year Review to ensure that previous remediation efforts at the sites continue to protect public health and the environment.

“Ensuring completed Superfund site cleanup work remains protective of human health and the environment is a priority for EPA,” said EPA New England Acting Regional Administrator Deb Szaro. “By completing reviews of the cleanups every five years, EPA fulfills its duty to remain vigilant so that these communities continue to be protected.”

The Superfund Sites where EPA will conduct Five-Year Reviews in 2022 are listed below. The web links provide detailed information on site status as well as past assessment and cleanup activity. Once the Five-Year Review is complete, its findings will be posted to the website in a final report.
