Supporting Current and Future Use at Superfund Sites
EPA works with local government, community organizations, business, residents and partners to consider the reuse of Superfund sites in the cleanup process. Involving partners in the cleanup process leads to:
- Establishing productive partnerships with clear goals;
- Protecting the remedy;
- Promoting long-term stewardship;
- Creating awareness about opportunities for site reuse; and
- Leveraging cleanup dollars.
As part of Superfund Redevelopment, EPA supported reuse pilot projects in over 70 communities between 1999 and 2002:
EPA now sets aside a limited number of resources each year to provide in-kind support to encourage the safe reuse of Superfund sites. Contact your local Region’s Reuse Coordinator for more information.
