EPA’s Superfund Websites Can Save Veterans’ Lives

EPA’s Superfund database lists Chemicals of Concerns (COCs) and their health effects, valuable information to medical care providers.

Thousands of veterans and their dependents lived and worked on military installations that are now listed as EPA Superfund sites.

Exposure to COC’s can cause serious medical conditions, including cancer and death. Veterans with who were stationed on an EPA Superfund installation need to share this information with their medical care provider. This is not about collecting VA disability compensation, but about helping veterans “connect the dots of serious illness” to military service and giving information to their health care providers that could save their lives.

EPA lists 130 military installations as Superfund sites. There is no legal requirement to notify the veterans of the remaining 129 military installations of the COCs they may have been exposed to and their health effects. This is not a mission impossible. It can be done. EPA lists the COCs and the ATSDR has identified the health effects of many of them.
