Why is it important to label something as a superfund?



  1. 0 Votes

    A superfund site is one with a serious contamination issue, one that is generally abandoned, and is thus in need of ownership and funding for cleanup. Since the sites are abandoned, there are very few people that have the money to take on the cleanup tasks, but that doesn’t negate the necessity to clean up these sites. The federal government, of course, funds the cleanup once a site is classified as a superfund, and without the designation, it is very likely that the contamination would remain in perpetuity, rendering the land unusable and potentially posing problems for neighbors.
