A Site-A-Day

September 2007

Supported by Jerome Foundation

Superfund365, A Site-A-Day, is an online data visualization application with an accompanying RSS-feed and email alert system. Each day for a year Superfund365 visited  one toxic site currently active in the Superfund program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

We began the journey in the New York City area and worked our way across the country, ending the year in Hawaii. The archive consisted of 365 visualizations of some of the worst toxic sites in the U.S., roughly a quarter of the total number on the on the Superfund’s National Priorities List (NPL).

Along the way, we conducted video interviews with people involved with or impacted by the Superfund program. Content changed everyday, so we encouraged visitors to use our subscribe tools that facilitated content delivery via email and RSS.

The Electronic Literature Lab could not preserve this Flash work with Ruffle or Conifer in June 2021. We plan to pursue other methods in the future.
