After a site has gone through an initial Superfund assessment and investigation and the department determines cleanup is needed, the site is either placed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Priorities List (NPL), considered for cleanup under the State Superfund Cooperative Program or referred to EPA for a removal action. Information about EPA lead non-National Priorities List sites can be found in several publicly accessible databases.
