Waste Site Reports

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regularly evaluates hazardous waste sites that are proposed for addition to the National Priorities List (NPL), a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) listing of sites that have undergone preliminary assessment and site inspection to determine which locations pose the greatest threat. The volumes identify hazardous waste sites that could impact natural resources for which NOAA acts as a federal trustee under the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan. Waste site reports (WSRs) often represent NOAA's first examination of a site. Following completion of a WSR, some sites may require a more in-depth assessment called a Preliminary Natural Resource Survey (PNRS). NOAA has published over 350 coastal and estuarine hazardous WSRs, over 150PNRS, and three Air Force Reports. NOAA uses information from these volumes to establish priorities for further site investigations.
