Federal removals

In certain situations where contamination poses an imminent threat to the public and/or the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will utilize Superfund dollars to address those threats via emergency removals (e.g. a transportation accident) and non-emergency, “time-critical” removals (e.g., asbestos contamination). EPA coordinates these removals with Wisconsin DNR – via the Remediation and Redevelopment Program – and local officials. For more information, please see Federal Removals Assistance For Local Governments (RR-746) [PDF].
