Excellence in Site Reuse
Superfund Redevelopment in Region 4
Region 4 has been successful in facilitating the redevelopment of Superfund sites across the Region. This success is largely due to the hard work and creative thinking of EPA project managers and attorneys and the cooperation of site owners, local governments and developers. To recognize these cooperative outcomes, Region 4 created the "Excellence in Site Reuse" award to give to those who had gone above and beyond in redeveloping a Superfund site.
Region 4 established the "Excellence in Site Reuse" award for those who have supported the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative through outstanding efforts when redeveloping a Superfund site. Region 4 has been very successful in facilitating the redevelopment of Superfund sites. Many developers, site owners, and local governments have worked closely with Region 4 to ensure that sites are redeveloped in a manner to enhance the remedial actions taken and/or minimize the Agency's responsibilities for long term care and maintenance. This award was established to recognize these outstanding efforts.
The "Excellence in Site Reuse" award could be given to a developer, site owner or local government who has demonstrated excellence in working cooperatively with Region 4 to ensure the redevelopment of a Superfund site was complimentary with the remedial actions taken and may have even enhanced the remedial actions.
