A Superfund is the name given to a government environmental program to help clean up toxic waste sites throughout the United States. It designates the site as a hazard to human health and places the site into a special budget source established in 1980 to be used to clean up waste sites. This exhibit focuses on the Cabot-Koppers Superfund site located in Gainesville.
