Superfund Remedial Program: The Convergence of Science, Technology and Regulation in a Diverse World

The Superfund Remedial Program has encountered and responded to many groundwater challenges in the three and one half decades of its existence.  The lessons learned during its existence have uniquely positioned the program to respond to emerging issues in the context of the existing regulatory framework supported by sound existing and evolving science and remedial technologies.  The diverse nature of Superfund sites requires a host of remedial strategies, technologies and the regulatory framework to tailor a remedy that is protective of human health and the natural resource.  This approach which has evolved over time, is utilized whether addressing a new contaminant (e.g., perfluorinated compounds), complex subsurface conditions (e.g., fractured bedrock), or large dilute groundwater plumes.
