U.S. EPA National Priorities List (NPL) Sites Point Data with CIESIN Modifications, Version 2
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SSF_EPANPLSPDCMv2_2.0


Summary
Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Priorities List (NPL) Sites Point Data with CIESIN Modifications, Version 2 data set is a modified version of the 2014 EPA NPL list. It includes all the sites that are proposed, currently on, or deleted from the Final NPL as of February 27, 2014. CIESIN has fixed eleven of the original coordinates by correcting latitude or longitude coordinates. It contains the point locations, including the eleven corrections, for 1,747 U.S. hazardous waste sites on the National Priorities List (NPL) of EPA's Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Information System (CERCLIS) for the fifty states, Puerto Rico, and 4 other territorial areas plus the now independent Palau, Federated States of Micronesia. The sites in CERCLIS are also known as Superfund Sites. The NPL is intended primarily to guide the EPA in determining which sites warrant further investigation.

Purpose: To provide an easily accessible, corrected EPA data set of the geo-referenced locations displayed as points for all the National Priorities List (NPL) Superfund sites in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other territories.
