21 Superfund Sites to See Immediate, Intense Cleanup Action
The task force will now develop plans to address each of the sites named on the list and report to Administrator Scott Pruitt on their progress. While no additional funds will be provided to facilitate or speed up the cleanup process, prioritizing these 21 Superfund sites will serve to “spur action at sites where opportunities exist to act quickly and comprehensively.”
See the EPA memo detailing all the Superfund Task Force recommendations.
The list includes three New Jersey Superfund sites—the American Cyanamid Company site in Bound Brook, the Diamond Alkali Company site in Newark, and the Barry’s Creek area in Wood Ridge Borough.
3 New Jersey Superfund Sites Make the List
Superfund sites in New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, Montana, California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington also made the list.
Some of the sites set for immediate, intense action are already on EPA’s National Priorities List (NPL), while others are in various stages of proposal for inclusion. To see how Superfund sites are added or removed from the NPL, read: How Do Sites Get On or Off the Superfund List?
EPA added seven new Superfund sites to the NPL in August 2017.
Do you work at an “uncontrolled hazardous waste site” like a Superfund site? If so, OSHA requires you to complete annual HAZWOPER refresher training on the HAZWOPER safety requirements that impact your job.

Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
