This database is not intended to be a comprehensive, all-inclusive source of information regarding the properties listed therein.
Origin Of Data : The information presented in this database was obtained from Department records and programs associated with these projects, including the Voluntary Response Action Program, the Brownfields Program, the Landfill Closure Program, the Federal Facilities Program, the Superfund Program, the Uncontrolled Sites Program, and official project documents.
