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
Residential, recreational and commercial use of on-site properties continues. The reasonably anticipated future land use will be determined during the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study process at OU2 and OU3. This information is considered during the development and selection of the remedy for the site.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2019, EPA had data on 5 on-site businesses. These businesses employed 21 people and generated an estimated $2,079,391 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.
EPA will develop options for specific Institutional Controls (ICs) for this site, as needed, in the Feasibility Study for OUs 2 & 3. ICs will be documented in the Record of Decision as a component of the remedy.
