Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund) includes some of the nations most contaminated lands as designated by state or federal officials. CERCLA sites are those focused on the management and remediation of abandoned, non-operating sites with media contaminated with hazardous substances, as opposed to Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) sites, which are generally considered operating sites where business owners implement approaches to manage solid and hazardous wastes as well as transportation of hazardous wastes. Brownfield site cleanups can include elements of both RCRA and CERCLA.

These range from large Superfund groundwater cleanup projects to complicated Superfund cost allocation projects throughout the United States.
