Only six sites in the CERCLIS
registry and only three sites in the CERCLIS
archives signed up with the Colorado VCP.(19) This suggests that the Colorado VCP has not absorbed contaminated sites or brownfields from these sources and has solicited participation from an entirely new crop of parcels.

The district-level incidence of the policy instruments considered during the Superfund debate is captured primarily through four variables: the total toxic releases and transfers in the district in 1987; total number of final and proposed sites in the district on the National Priorities List and the total number of non-NPL sites in the district listed in EPA's database of hazardous waste sites (CERCLIS
); and a count of the companies and other entities in the district listed by the EPA as a PRP at Superfund sites.
This is especially true if EPA is generally aware of what the state is doing, or if the site has not been put on or has been deleted from CERCLIS
(EPA's official list of sites).

To help reduce the stigma associated with EPA involvement at Brownfields sites, EPA has archived 24,000 of the 40,000 sites that were listed in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Information System (CERCLIS
).(16) The CERCLIS(17) is EPA's comprehensive data base and data management system that inventories and tracks contaminated sites addressed or needing to be addressed by CERCLA.
The larger database from which NPL sites is drawn is called the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Information System (CERCLIS
Environmental Factor CERCLA contains over 200,000 pages of EPA Superfund hazardous waste site information in five linked databases: EPA site data from the NPL (National Priority List) and CERCLIS
databases; Complete PRP (Potentially Responsible Parties) information; full text of RODS (Records of Decision); the entire Civil Enforcement Docket; and the glossary of EPA terms, abbreviations, and acronyms.
(This does not mean the sites are free from contamination.) To help defuse some of the stigma that seems to have attached to these "no further action" sites, EPA moved them from the Superfund data base (CERCLIS
) to a newly created Archive List.
Currently, 4 percent of roughly 30,000 Comprehensive Environmental Response, Cleanup, and Liability Information System (CERCLIS
) sites are on the National Priority Lists (NPL); of these, 116 are Federal Facility sites.
VISTA can be used as a standalone database or in conjunction with other site-oriented databases already available through CIS (such as CERCLIS
, RCRIS, and FINDS).
