Since 1991, when the final cleanup remedy was considered completed at only 61 sites, EPA has made significant progress, doubling and then more than tripling that number in the last 2 years. During Fiscal Year (FY) 1993, final remedy construction was completed at 68 sites, increasing the total to 217. These 217 sites demonstrate the diversity of the nation's hazardous waste sites: the chemical contaminants, geographic locations, and cleanup technologies present unique challenges at each site. Although construction of the final site remedy has been completed at the 217 sites, many of the sites may require long-term operation of the cleanup technology to ensure that the cleanup is effective and protective of human health and the environment. While the completion of construction at 217 sites represents a meaningful accomplishment in finalizing activities at sites, it portrays only a portion of the total work under Superfund to address hazardous sites, conduct site assessments to evaluate the need and type of cleanup required, and construct cleanup remedies.
