Compiled in January 1996, this database consists of 2,042 polygons for selected hazardous waste sites. The Hazardous Waste Site ATSDR layer was created by linking HAZ_SITES_ATSDR_BASE with additional data. Most polygons represent sites that are considered for cleanup under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA” or “Superfund”) and are either proposed for, currently on, or deleted from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) NPL.
