  • At the Wells G&H site in Massachusetts, cooperation and careful planning among EPA, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), the City of Woburn, the Woburn Redevelopment Authority, the responsible parties and the local community resulted in the site’s cleanup, revitalization and continued use. An EPA Superfund Redevelopment Initiative grant allowed extensive reuse planning efforts on several source area properties, which took into consideration the needs and wants of the surrounding community. Additionally, EPA cleanup efforts took place such that businesses and organizations within the contaminated site area could continue to operate and provide valuable income to the surrounding community.
