Redevelopment at the Site

The Colorado Smelter site is part of EPA’s Superfund Redevelopment Initiative (SRI) program that provides reuse assessment tools to collect and evaluate information to develop assumptions about reasonably anticipated future land use(s). The site has also been selected to be a part of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities (PSC) that works to coordinate federal housing, transportation, water, and other infrastructure investments to make neighborhoods more prosperous, allow people to live closer to jobs, save households time and money, and reduce pollution.

The project is known as the Colorado Smelter Revitalization Project (CSRP). CSRP is a long-term, multi-agency, collaborative project that seeks to revitalize the Colorado Smelter study area and also nearby neighborhoods.

Economic Activity at the Site

As of December 2017, 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.
