Create a Federal Facilities Superfund program that is executed by EPA. Each Department would be required to fund their own Superfund sites. EPA would become the lead agency in addition to the lead regulatory agency and executive the investigations and cleanup of the sites. Currently you have duplicative environmental staffs at each Federal Agency causing interagency disputes on actions required to address these CERCLA sites. I recommend that you first conduct a pilot program and use DOD's Formerly Used Defense Sites program, as DOD no longer owns these sites and having DOD execute this program draws resources away from DOD's primary missions to train, equip, and man forces.
