The Hazard Ranking System
A cutoff score of 28.50 was established for listing on the NPL.
- This score was set to meet the Congressional mandate
of 400 sites on the original NPL.
- This score appears to flag 5 to 10 percent of all sites as NPL sites. (Since 1991, EPA has, on average, added 30 sites per year to the NPL.)
