An Evaluation of Public Preferences for Superfund Site Cleanup, Volume I: A Preliminary Assessment
The purpose of the project is to develop a methodology for determining the cleanup options for National Priority List (NPL) sites governed under Superfund legislation that are acceptable to the public. A survey instrument was develop as part of a pilot market research study to explore preferences regarding cleanup options. Detailed information on five cleanup options and their relative cost on a per household basis (consistent with property value evidence) was presented to respondents, and results about preferences was obtained. The implications of the research are explored by constructing aggregate costs and benefits for cleanup of all non-federal NPL sites. The report contains preliminary conclusions from the study including the implications and priorities for cleanup policy.
