DALLAS - (Nov. 10, 2015) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is presenting the Excellence in Site Reuse Award to the Dallas Housing Authority and Goodwill Industries of Dallas, Inc. for redeveloping portions of the RSR Corporation Superfund site in west Dallas. The ceremony will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, at Goodwill Industries of Dallas, 3020 N. Westmoreland Rd., Dallas, Texas.
