Abstract
EPA-New England is responsible for the cleanup of over 100 Superfund sites throughout New England. Although protecting human health and the environment is the primary objective of these cleanups, EPA also recognizes the value in helping to return Superfund sites to beneficial reuse. Understanding the current and likely future uses of a site are fundamental to achieving both objectives. Most importantly, accurate information on the likely uses of a Superfund site and the surrounding area is necessary to make reasonable assumptions about possible exposures to contaminants. These assumptions form the basis for establishing sitespecific cleanup levels and, ultimately, for designing a protective remedy. Uncertainty in this information makes it difficult to appropriately tailor the site investigation and cleanup, and oftentimes leads to increased project costs and delays. From the standpoint of facilitating site reuse, details regarding current or planned uses can enable EPA to consider those uses in the selection, design and implementation of the remedy. For instance, it may be possible to locate a soil or groundwater treatment system so as not to physically restrict the construction of future buildings. In other cases, the cleanup might be phased in a way that allows certain portions of a site to be available sooner. There are numerous Superfund sites across the country where reuse has already been facilitated in this manner. However, such accommodations will only be considered if they do not compromise the protectiveness of the cleanup. This Reuse Assessment summarizes information on the current and potential future land uses at the Beede Waste Oil Superfund Site.
