Construction Completion Law and Legal Definition

A construction completion site is a former toxic waste site where physical construction of all cleanup actions are complete, all immediate threats have been addressed, and all long-term threats are under control. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed the construction completions list (CCL) to simplify its system of categorizing sites and to better communicate the successful completion of cleanup activities. Sites qualify when:

  • any necessary physical construction is complete, whether or not final cleanup levels or other requirements have been achieved; or
  • EPA has determined that the response action should be limited to measures that do not involve construction; or
  • the site qualifies for Deletion from the NPL.

Inclusion of a site on the CCL has no legal significance.
