Prior studies have identified weaknesses in the Superfund 5-year review process. The authors evaluated how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identifies and monitors issues and recommendations in Reviews conducted at federal facility Superfund sites. They also examined how EPA achieves compliance with unimplemented recommendations and non-concurrence issues. EPA's Superfund 5-year review is a required process that examines the clean-up remedies at Superfund sites where hazardous substances remain at levels that may pose unacceptable risks. The Reviews are required every 5 years. They determine whether remedies adequately protect human health and the environment. Federal facility Superfund sites (e.g., military sites) complete their own Reviews and submit them to EPA. EPA is required to report to Congress on these Reviews.
