List of Superfund sites in Nevada

This is a list of Superfund sites in Nevada designated under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) environmental law. The CERCLA federal law of 1980 authorized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a list of polluted locations requiring a long-term response to clean-up hazardous material contaminations.[1] These locations are known as Superfund sites, and are placed on the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL guides the EPA in "determining which sites warrant further investigation" for environmental remediation.[2] As of November 29, 2010, there was one Superfund site on the National Priorities List in Nevada, with no further sites proposed for addition.[2] No site has yet been removed from the list.[2]
