FFSEP OpenGov 

EPA is announcing the release of its Federal Facilities Site Evaluation Project (FFSEP) website.  The FFSEP is a culmination of efforts undertaken in 2010 under the Integrated Cleanup Initiative (ICI) to determine the disposition of sites that appeared to be making insufficient, if any, cleanup progress. The FFSEP evaluated 514 federally owned sites that were identified in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Information System (CERCLIS) as potentially stalled in their progress when the ICI was begun in FY2010.

In an effort to verify the activity description and status of the 514 FFSEP sites, EPA reached out to the Federal Departments and Agencies with sites on the list.  We collaborated with our Federal partners to gather the most current information available on these sites.  We engaged our state partners to include site information from their records. This collaboration enabled EPA to make activity determinations on 491 of the 514 sites that had not been fully assessed.  The cooperation offered by the other Federal Agencies and our state partners was invaluable to the success of this project. The FFSEP supports EPA’s commitment to open government by providing access to information about these sites, so that the public can more fully engage in cleanups in their communities.
