Cleanups at Federal Facilities

2018 National Federal Facility Excellence in Site Reuse Awards

We are excited to announce the first annual “National Federal Facility Excellence in Site Reuse” awardees!  We established the award to recognize the teams who have supported the reuse and restoration of Federal Facility sites through outstanding efforts to ensure that sites are remediated to promote continued property use or support a site reuse, as well as provide an educational opportunity about how the awardees’ sites were remediated and reused to serve as an example to other site remediators. The award is divided into four categories: NPL sites; Non-NPL Cleanup; NPL Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC); Non-NPL BRAC.
