Federal Facility Sites

Region 7 Federal Facility Information

From nuclear weapons plants and military bases to landfills and fuel distribution stations, the U.S. government operates thousands of facilities across the country. Federal Facility sites are properties and facilities operated by the United States Government that contain environmental contamination from unexploded ordnance, radioactive waste, or other hazardous substances.

Federal Facility Program Background

EPA's Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office (FFRRO) works with other federal entities (Department of Energy, Department of Defense) to facilitate faster, more effective, and less costly cleanup and reuse of federal facilities.

EPA also has a role in ensuring that Federal agencies who manage and operate facilities comply with environmental requirements in the same manner and extent as any other regulated facility. EPA works in partnership with other federal, state, tribal, and local agencies to see that federal facilities meet their environmental requirements. More Federal Facilities Information.

Reuse and Redevelopment of Federal Facility Sites

FFRRO helps accelerate the transfer of federal property by coordinating environmental cleanup activities and crafting innovative property transfer arrangements. FFRRO assists in the transfer of both Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) sites and Federal Facility sites that are on the NPL (i.e., Superfund sites). FFRRO assists other Federal agency partners by working with EPA Regional personnel to accelerate cleanup at contaminated sites and facilities and ensuring that property is more quickly available for productive reuse by local communities.

Because these facilities often encompass hundreds of acres with buildings, roads and other infrastructure, their effective and efficient cleanup and reuse can play a pivotal role in a community’s economic development. More information on reuse at Federal Facilities.
