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.
Redevelopment at the Site
The FLTG created a 60 acre tidal marsh, with associated uplands, in the San Jacinto floodplain, as approriate compensation for natural resource injuries. The location of the restoration project, the deteriorated Brownwood Subdivision of Baytown, was chosen through a consensus-based selection process. Today, the neighboring restored wetlands serve outdoor enthusiasts, and are a haven for plants, birds, fish and animals.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2016, 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.
