About the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative
This nationally coordinated effort provides EPA and its partners with a process to return Superfund sites to productive use. Learn more at Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2018, EPA did not have economic data related to on-site businesses, or economic data were not applicable due to site use. View information about redevelopment economics at Superfund sites.
Activity and Use Limitations
At this site, activity and use limitations that EPA calls institutional controls are in place. Institutional controls play an important role in site remedies because they reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use. They also guide human behavior. For instance, zoning restrictions prevent land uses – such as residential uses – that are not consistent with the level of cleanup. For more background, see Institutional Controls.
The original ROD did not include institutional controls. The 2013 Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) modified the OU1 and OU2 ROD to document the selection and inclusion of institutional controls as part of the remedy for the Site. Institutional controls cited in the ESD include: limiting future uses of the property to industrial or commercial, restricting any future use of the landfill area, which can impact the integrity of the landfill, and restricting the use of contaminated groundwater until cleanup levels and remedial action objectives have been achieved.
