DOJ OIG Releases Report on ENRD’s Superfund Activities for Fiscal Years 2021 and 2022

Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today the release of a report examining the Environment and Natural Resources Division’s (ENRD) Superfund Activities for Fiscal Years (FY) 2021 and 2022. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) established a trust fund, known as the Superfund, to clean up the nation’s worst hazardous waste sites.

The DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is required by statute to audit uses of (including costs charged to) the fund in the prior fiscal year.

We concluded that the ENRD reasonably accounted for the activities that it charged to FY 2021 and 2022 Superfund cases. Therefore, today’s report makes no recommendations to the ENRD.
