Superfund Redevelopment 10th Anniversary

Londonderry, New Hampshire

Thanks to a partnership between EPA and the Academy of Model Aeronautics, the Auburn Road Flying Field is now open on the Auburn Road Landfill site for the local model airplane club, the New Hampshire Flying Tigers.

In July 2009, EPA celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative. Since 1999, SRI has helped communities across the country reclaim Superfund sites, and bring down the barriers that have kept many of them vacant and underutilized for decades.

SRI has been helping communities explore how reuse and cleanup can go hand in hand, resulting in beneficial outcomes. SRI has also provided stakeholders with tools to overcome reuse obstacles. Whether it’s a new flying field for model airplanes, a new wind farm supplying clean, alternative energy, or a new community garden, SRI is committed to working with communities to understand how their site can safely be returned to use.

As part of the 10th Anniversary celebration, SRI highlighted reuse stories from around the country on its website over the course of 2009. These stories offer glimpses into the story of these once contaminated properties and the people whose dedicated efforts resulted in their new vitality. SRI continues to post new reuse stories on its website each month.
