Presentation Overview:

EPA's Superfund Redevelopment Initiative (SRI) celebrates its 10-year Anniversary in 2009! To mark this event, EPA is hosting a diverse series of CLU-IN internet seminars featuring Superfund site reuse success stories. This and successive webinars will present reuse case studies on multi use, renewable energy, ecological reuse, and commercial reuse.

Ecological Revitalization: Turning Contaminated Properties in Community Assets
This information session will provide RPMs and other site managers and stakeholders better understand, coordinate, and carry out ecological land revitalization at contaminated properties as part of site cleanup.

  • Learn to understand, coordinate, and complete ecological land revitalization at contaminated properties during cleanup. You will gain technical information and references for executing ecological revitalization activities at contaminated properties.
  • Build your toolbox. EPA has many resources available to support ecological land reuse. This session will help you with networking, designing, and implementing cleanups to help increase valuable ecosystems which are created through ecological revitalization. You will also discover assistance through EPA's EcoTools service at
  • Discover the environmental, economic, and social benefits provided from ecological reuse of a cleanup site. EPA can cleanup contaminated properties while creating green corridors, supporting diverse vegetation, reducing erosion, sequestering carbon, removing stigma associated with prior waste site, and much more.
  • Hear about the technical considerations for designing and implementing cleanups that facilitate ecological reuse of streams, wetlands, and terrestrial ecosystems, including long-term stewardship.
  • Discover how site managers use ecological land reuse as part of real cleanup site. This session includes site manager presentations on two sites that implemented ecological revitalization. After this session, you'll know that there are about 100 contaminated sites where ecological reuse was implemented, and you'll know who to contact at each site for more information!

The session will comprise three presenters followed by audience questions and comments. The target audience for this course is cleanup site managers.
