People living near up to 302 highly-contaminated sites controlled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have faced health hazards from pollution for years or sometimes decades, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation has found.

Those sites are part of the EPA’s Superfund program, which is intended to clean the most dangerous and polluted places in America. But the agency has either been unable or unwilling to decontaminate many of the locations, allowing pollution to fester, a DCNF analysis of more than 1,300 active Superfund sites found.

Health hazards still either threaten humans or are unknown at 117 – or nearly one-quarter – of the 480 Superfund sites added before 1987, TheDCNF’s analysis found. Those locations have waited for more than 30 years for decontamination or an adequate analysis to determine risks.

“You’re not going to find a Superfund site where there weren’t feet dragging in the process,” Karen Gogins told TheDCNF. Gogins is a policy staffer with Citizens for a Health Bay, an advocacy group for the Commencement Bay Superfund site in Washington state, which was added when the program began in 1983.
