Hazardous Waste Cleanup: Observations on Statesńˇ╗ Role Liabilities at DOD and Hardrock Mining Sites, and Litigation Issues: Congressional Testimony
David Trimble (au)
Statement of David Trimble, Dir., Natural Resources and Environment, GAO. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the agency that manages the nationńˇ╗s principal hazardous waste cleanup program, one in four Americans lives within 3 miles of a hazardous waste site. Many such sites pose health and other risks, and their cleanup can be lengthy and expensive. EPAńˇ╗s Superfund program provides a process to address contaminated sites. Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), parties that contributed to the contamination of a site are generally liable for cleanup and related costs. These parties may include federal agencies, such as the Dept. of Defense (DOD), and companies. EPA may place seriously contaminated sites on the Nat. Priorities List (NPL). This testimony summarizes (1) the role of states in cleaning up hazardous waste sites; (2) DODńˇ╗s management of its sites on the NPL; (3) federal liabilities from contaminated hardrock mining sites; and (4) litigation under CERCLA and other statutes. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
