Federal Facilities

Federal facilities of concern are those where the federal government conducts (or has conducted) a variety of activities that have resulted in hazardous waste, unexploded ordnance, explosive waste, radioactive waste, fuels, and a variety of other hazardous substances that present an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment. Project managers provide regulatory oversight and technical assistance for environmental cleanups at federal properties under the federal CERCLA regulations and the Illinois Leaking Undergroun d Storage Tank program. The properties consist of active and reserve Army, Navy and Air Force facilities, as well as formerly used defense sites. The United States government is responsible for addressing contamination at approximately 13 active or closing facilities and 147 formerly used defense sites.
