CERCLA, also referred to as Superfund, is an acronym for the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act. This groundbreaking legislation was enacted to address the grave environmental challenges posed by hazardous waste sites across the United States.

A Superfund site, as designated by CERCLA, refers to a contaminated location requiring extensive cleanup efforts. These sites are typically characterized by the presence of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants that pose significant risks to human health and the environment.
