Cleanups at Federal Facilities

Federal Facilities Success Stories

EPA serves the public by promoting innovative, cost-effective cleanups at federal facilities and putting those facilities back to productive use. We work extensively with other federal agencies, state and local governments, and community representatives to ensure that facilities meet environmental standards and undergo redevelopment for both public- and private-sector reuse.

Accomplishments at sites across the country include:

  • Transforming military installations into centers for business, industry, and education;
  • Creating jobs through cleanup and reuse;
  • Fostering partnerships among federal, state, and local governments;
  • Providing recreational and open space; and
  • Involving local communities in cleanup and reuse plans.
