Activism 2.0.1 beta

There are currently 1,337 Superfund toxic waste sites in the united states on the epa's national priorities list

Our Mission

SuperfundResearch.org was formed in order to maintain transparency in the US Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund toxic waste site clean up program by developing advanced data mining tools, coupled with old fashioned pen to paper Freedom of Information Act activism. Our mission is to collect and freely distribute over half a billion pages of EPA Superfund records.

What is the Superfund?

Superfund or Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) is a United States federal law designed to clean up sites contaminated with hazardous substances as well as broadly defined “pollutants or contaminants”

Go to Why Are We Here?

Why Are We Here?

It’s estimated that only 2 -5% of the Superfund record is publicly available. For example, none of the records for the 175+ Superfund sites in New York and New Jersey are available on the US EPA website. Without public access to these records it’s impossible for US citizens to make effective decisions about their own health.

Whom Are We Seeking?

We are currently looking for Python developers to make micro time contributions towards improving our web scrapers. We are also seeking investigative journalists, internet security experts, and web developers. If you are interested in this project please contact us at info@superfundresearch.org
