A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
Environmental Cleanup and Liability Management Team
The ECLM Team manages the Central Hazardous Materials Fund (CHF) to support cleanup of contaminated sites located on DOI lands, as well as the Environmental and Disposal Liabilities (EDL) program.
The CHF supports program management, response actions, remedial investigations/feasibility and other advanced studies, and cleanups at sites where a release of hazardous substances has occurred (as defined in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and for which the Department is the lead agency.
The EDL program is in response to requirements of the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB). The Department is required by statute to annually determine and report its financial environmental liability. Department-wide environmental liability is the sum of all real and personal property environmental liability estimates prepared by DOI Bureaus. The statutory mandates for the determination of environmental liability began with the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990 (CFO). The purpose of the CFO Act was to improve general and financial management practices in the federal government by requiring the development of an integrated financial management system, including financial reporting and internal controls.
