Website: Superfund365

Superfund GraphEach day for a year, starting on September 1, 2007, Superfund365 visited one toxic site in the federal Superfund program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The group began the journey in the New York City area and worked across the country, ending the year in Hawaii. Today, the archive consists of 365 visualizations of some of the worst toxic sites in the United States, roughly a quarter of the total number on the Superfund’s National Priorities List.

For each entry, an interactive graph shows what kinds of contaminants are involved, along with the acreage affected and the parties responsible. The entries also feature timelines, local demographics and population statistics, photos, location and descriptive information, a hazardous ranking score, maps, and a blog entry about the site visits. The website has videos about Superfund, as well.
