Frequent Questions

What is the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative?

The Superfund Redevelopment Initiative is EPA's coordinated national effort to facilitate the return of the nation's most hazardous waste sites to productive use by selecting cleanup remedies that are consistent with the anticipated future use of the sites. While EPA's primary mission is to protect human health and the environment, Superfund cleanups have also been instrumental in the reuse of contaminated sites. Consequently, EPA works with communities as a part of the cleanup process to determine the future use of a particular site so that the cleanup design is protective for that particular use. This will enable communities to reclaim such properties as valuable assets.
