National Information

Superfund Redevelopment in Region 5 helps local communities return contaminated Superfund sites to safe and productive uses. EPA is working with these communities and other stakeholders - prospective purchasers, local governments - to consider reuse opportunities and to integrate appropriate reuse options into the cleanup process. To date, Superfund sites have already been developed into parks, commercial buildings, warehouses, and residential areas.
