The purpose of this report is to communicate the progress of the Superfund program in Fiscal Year (FY) 2004 (October 1-September 30, 2004). EPA prepared this report in an ongoing effort to provide the public with information on Superfund. The Superfund program is constantly adjusting to respond to the new realities facing the program. As part of that response, EPA conducted several studies to improve the program. In the spring of 2002, EPA convened the Superfund Subcommittee under the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology to provide a public dialogue on the future directions of the Superfund program. The Subcommittee completed its work on March 31, 2004, and transmitted the approved Subcommittee report to the Administrator on May 6, 2004. The report contained 17 consensus recommendations regarding: (1) the role of the Superfund program in addressing megasites; (2) program policy for listing sites on the National Priorities List (including megasites); and (3) performance measures that effectively communicate program accomplishments. In part, this report responds to recommendations in the 'Final Report: Superfund Subcommittee of the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology' and another internal study examining future possible activities. EPA also established a Superfund Board of Directors to provide leadership in implementing recommendations of the 120-Daystudy.
