A point of clarification regarding the response to Megan Reha's question about
the number of brownfield sites in the US-  The respondee stated that "the
is limited to National Priority List sites and some other sites of federal
interest, a very limited number of sites." This statement within the
context of
the response could be misconstrued to mean that the US EPA Brownfields Program
handles NPL sites. Although the US EPA Brownfields Program does derive its
authority from CERCLA, NPL sites are  handled by the Superfund Program through
the formal Superfund process (noting that the lead for these sites may be
at the
federal or state level). The US EPA Brownfields Program explicitly does not
with NPL sites and as a matter of policy does not deal with NPL-caliber sites,
although the distinction between NPL-caliber and non NPL-caliber sites is
subject to debate.
