In August 2014, EPA Region 4 presented an “Excellence in Site Reuse” award to Forsite Development, Inc. for redeveloping the Martin-Marietta, Sodyeco, Inc. Superfund site near Charlotte, North Carolina. The Martin-Marietta site has been cleaned up and transformed as part of the 667-acre ReVenture Park. Designed to take advantage of the property’s extensive existing infrastructure, this clean energy technology park will serve as an incubator and hub for large-scale renewable energy and alternative fuel projects.

EPA Proposes to Add 35th Avenue Site in Alabama to Superfund's National Priority List (NPL).

In September 2014, EPA added five hazardous waste sites that pose risks to human health and the environment to the NPL and is proposing to add three additional sites to the list. In Region 4, one site - the 35th Avenue site in Birmingham, AL - has been proposed for addition to the NPL. The 35th Avenue site is part of a coordinated approach to addressing environmental impacts known as the North Birmingham Environmental Collaboration Project.
