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
Pavement, buildings or storage areas cover a large portion of the site, particularly in the southern half of the site. Multiple businesses are using the site for industrial uses, including distribution, truck and heavy equipment staging, and pallet supply. A commercial business entity purchased the northern half of the site in March 2014. The Harris County Toll Road Authority plans to expand the street adjacent to the south side of the site and extend the toll road adjacent to the west side of the site.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2019, EPA had data on 4 on-site businesses. These businesses employed 89 people and generated an estimated $70,321,000 in annual sales revenue. View additional 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.
