Presentation Overview:

Superfund site cleanup and reuse has resulted in restored value to site properties and new economic opportunities for surrounding communities. Communities reuse Superfund sites in many ways – new parks, shopping centers, athletic fields, wildlife sanctuaries, manufacturing facilities, residences, new roads and infrastructure centers are just a few examples. Once a site property is ready for reuse, it can revitalize a local economy with jobs, new businesses, tax revenues and local spending. EPA looks at many types of economic impacts of reuse at Superfund sites, including:

  • Number of on-site jobs.
  • Annual employment income from on-site jobs.
  • On-site property value information.
  • Local property tax revenues.
  • Other economic impacts that are unique to specific sites.

This webinar will share the stories of how Superfund Redevelopment is spurring economic growth in three communities.
