Redevelopment at the Site

EPA response actions at the Site addressed soil contamination in residential areas, the mall, and sitewide groundwater. EPA permanently relocated 24 property owners and demolished 18 homes. This relocation allowed for removal of deeply contaminated soil and materials for off-site treatment and disposal. EPA cleaned up a total of 93 residential properties, while allowing for continued residential use in the Claremont Development. A long-term groundwater monitoring program and groundwater use restriction continue to protect human health and the environment. The site remedy is consistent with the future uses in Manville's redevelopment plans. To date, a developer has rebuilt 10 of the 18 demolished homes. Future redevelopment will include green space, residential housing and revitalized commercial space on the Rustic Mall portion of the site.
