Superfund Redevelopment Initiative

Superfund Sites with Green Space Reuse

On this page:


Superfund sites that are being reused as "green space" encompass a wide range of reuse activities including: agricultural reuse (growing crops, pasture land for livestock); ecological reuse (wildlife sanctuaries, nature preserves, wetlands); and recreational reuse (golf courses, ballfields, open space).

Continued Use vs. New Use

Continued Use: A site identified as in continued use refers to a site or OU that is being used in the same general manner as they were when the site became subject to the Superfund Program.

New Use: A site identified as having new use refers to a site or OU where a new use, or uses, are occurring such that there has been a change in the type of use (e.g., industrial to commercial), or the property was unused and now supports a specific use. This means that the developed site or OU is actually used for its intended purpose by customers, visitors, employees, residents, or fauna, in the case of ecological reuse.

Find fact sheets highlighting agricultural reuse. The fact sheets provide information about the reuse activities at the site, the site owner's planning and development process, geographic location, past cleanup activities, and contacts for more information. The fact sheets have been designed to be useful documents for site owners, future site users, prospective purchasers, lenders and developers. Sites are categorized depending on whether or not cleanup at the site is complete, and whether the site is already in reuse. Many sites that are in reuse can support additional use. In some cases, the previous use of these sites may make additional use even easier.

Fact Sheets - Recreational

Find fact sheets highlighting recreational reuse. The fact sheets provide information about the reuse activities at the site, the site owner's planning and development process, geographic location, past cleanup activities, and contacts for more information. The fact sheets have been designed to be useful documents for site owners, future site users, prospective purchasers, lenders and developers. Sites are categorized depending on whether or not cleanup at the site is complete, and whether the site is already in reuse. Many sites that are in reuse can support additional use. In some cases, the previous use of these sites may make additional use even easier.
