Hazardous Waste Sites and Soil Contamination

{Haz Waste Image} The Site Assessments and Chemical Risk Unit addresses health concerns about hazardous waste sites in Connecticut through a Cooperative Agreement grant from the Agency For Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). These sites include: 

  • Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) sites 

  • State Superfund sites

The Site Assessments and Chemical Risk Unit evaluates environmental data and provides education to address the public health impacts from exposure to hazardous substances at sites.
