  • Description:
    The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980—a.k.a., the “Superfund” Act—created the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to serve as a science-based public health agency working to address community concerns about hazardous waste. For 3 decades, ATSDR has kept people in more than 6,000 U.S. communities safe from environmental hazards. • ATSDR protects Americans’ health by preventing exposure to harmful contaminants in our soil, water, and air. • ATSDR responds to requests from communities across the country to protect people from exposures to harmful levels of substances in the environment. • ATSDR provides funds to state health departments and supports environmental health professionals in regional and field offices. Along with Atlanta-based headquarters staff, ATSDR experts are ready 24/7 to respond to environmental health threats from natural disasters, chemical spills, and other emergencies.
