Ready for Reuse in Louisiana

EPA Region 6 has developed a new, long-term corrective action "measure of success" for all EPA/state cleanup programs that recognizes when a site/facility has been assessed and, if necessary, remediated to the extent that the property is safe for reuse or redevelopment. The Ready for Reuse Initiative has become an integral component of the Agency's National Land Revitalization Action Agenda.

Ready for Reuse is not intended to be a clean-closure approach; rather, it encourages cleanups that will quickly support protective redevelopment opportunities. As part of this Program, EPA and/or the states provide a regulatory "determination" that affirms that the conditions on the site are protective of human health and the environment based on the current and planned future use(s) of the property. For more information, contact Jeanne Schulze, Region 6, at
