Redevelopment at the Site

An MSD certification issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and supported by the City of Houston prohibits the use of the affected groundwater at the Site, thus eliminating the groundwater ingestion exposure pathway. This in-turn will promote the redevelopment of the property. In addition, deed restriction of the affected groundwater plume to prevent future groundwater use within the MSD area was filed on March 7, 2006. Other deed restrictions are planned to prevent excavations within the formerly arsenic soil excavation areas and the monofill area. The 12.5-acre Site property located north of Westpark Drive was purchased from the Levy estate by the PRP in April 2000 and is currently undeveloped and bordered by light industrial property. Several individuals/companies have enquired as to the availability of the property. With EPA approval, the PRP has moved monitoring wells located within the central portion of the property to the boundary to promote redevelopment by prospective purchasers.

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.
