Superfund Sites In Nebraska

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (CERCLA, or “Superfund”) establishes a national program for responding to releases of Hazardous substances into the environment. The National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) is the regulations that implements CERCLA.

The Nebraska Risk Assessment Program has assisted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) with writing or reviewing risk assessments for these “Superfund” sites.

The U.S. EPA Website highlights the location of Superfund sites in Nebraska and the work that has been completed to address these hazardous waste sites.
