What is an EPA Five-Year Review?
The purpose of a five-year review is to ensure that implemented cleanup plans at Superfund sites function as intended and continue to be protective of human health and the environment. These regular reviews, which are required by federal law when contaminants remain at a site, include:
- Inspecting the site and cleanup technologies;
- Reviewing monitoring data, operating data, and maintenance records; and,
- Determining if any new relevant regulatory requirements have been established since EPA’s original cleanup decision was finalized.
