DuPage County Landfill/Blackwell Forest Preserve: A Superfund Site Reuse Success Story

Description

At the DuPage County Landfill/Blackwell Forest Preserve Superfund site in DuPage County, Illinois, remedial actions have addressed site contamination, and local residents of all ages are celebrating a rich selection of year‐round recreational uses. At the outset, the municipal landfill was established on 40‐acres of the 1,500‐acre Blackwell Forest Preserve, with the goal of creating the “hill”, known as Mount Hoy, to serve as the centerpiece of the forest preserve. Current land uses at the site include 40 acres of restored habitat for ecological uses and public recreation, as well as trails, an observation area, archery range, urban stream research facility and fishing pier.
