Land Revitalization

Land revitalization puts previously contaminated properties back into productive use. Reusing cleaned up sites protects public health and the environment by preventing sprawl, preserving green space and reinvigorating communities. EPA's Land Revitalization Program ensures that reuse considerations are integrated into all of EPA's cleanup decisions including cleanups affecting brownfields, underground storage tanks, and Superfund redevelopment.
