North Dakota Superfund Sites
At this time there are no Superfund sites listed in North Dakota, the only state able to make that claim.
Superfund was enacted in 1980 by the United States Congress in response to the Love Canal disaster. This law created a tax on petroleum and chemical industries and provided broad federal authority to respond directly to releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances that may endanger public health or the environment. Over five years, $1.6 billion was collected, and the tax went to a trust fund for cleaning up abandoned or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
Nationwide, the EPA lists 1,604 Superfund sites as of May 2005.
