ToxicSites.us to Locate Superfund

 

Superfund sites are hazardous waste sites, and you probably don’t want to raise your kids or park your bounce house near them unless you’re pro-cancer. The first — and most famous — Superfund site was Love Canal, a neighborhood in Niagara Falls, N.Y., where 22,000 tons of toxic waste were buried by Hooker Chemical Company and caused illnesses, miscarriages, birth defects, and death among residents. There are currently more than 1,300 Superfund sites in the U.S., and now, thanks to media artist Brooke Singer, you can more easily find any in your area — and then decide if it’s time to pack your bags and move somewhere less likely to make you grow a tail.
Singer is the creator of ToxicSites, a website and searchable database that catalogs all Superfund sites in the country in real time using data provided by the U.S. EPA. Toxic Sites doesn’t just provide names of Superfund sites: It provides a timeline of contamination and cleanup, a list of contaminants and possible health effects, the parties responsible, and census data for impacted populations.
