The Superfund program is the name used for hazardous waste sites that were abandoned, and created by an act of the US government in 1980. This is a complex waste clean up process. The EPA has the authority to enforce the clean up of a superfund site, and to make sure the responsible parties of the contamination, finance the clean up. There are a total of two superfund sites within my municipality. They are the Ciba Geigy Corp Site, which was a chemical facility and Reich Farm, which was leased to an independent waste hauler by the owners of the farm.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
