Coastal and Estuarine Hazardous Waste Site Reports

Icon for waste site information.

NOAA scientists have prepared review documents--the Coastal Hazardous Waste Site Reports--describing their evaluations of more than 300 hazardous waste sites that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed for addition to the National Priorities List (NPL) (sites on this list are commonly known as Superfund sites). These are uncontrolled sites that could threaten natural resources for which NOAA acts as a trustee.
