Bringing Alternative Energy Projects to Superfund Sites
June 25, 2015, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, EDT
As communities, towns and businesses across the United States are looking for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower utility bills and use alternative energy sources, Superfund sites and other contaminated properties have continued to garner interest. Nationally, Superfund sites have been put back into beneficial use producing energy from solar, wind, hydro-electric, biomass, and landfill gas-to-energy projects. This webinar will share several site-specific case study examples detailing how the potential for alternative energy was assessed, steps that had to be taken to facilitate the reuse in a way that would also be compatible with the remedy, and any economic or environmental incentives used to fund make these projects fiscally possible.

Green Infrastructure: Reusing Contaminated Sites and Promoting Sustainable Communities
July 28, 2015, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, EDT
This webinar will introduce green infrastructure elements in the context of reusing and revitalizing contaminated lands. Site-specific projects will be used to discuss reuse projects that with green infrastructure elements such as habitat conservation, stormwater management, recreational opportunities and quality of life for communities nearby the contaminated land. The webinar will also share green infrastructure considerations and opportunities for future projects looking to sustainably return contaminated lands to productive and beneficial use for communities.

Potentially Responsible Party (PRP) Perspectives on Superfund Site Reuse
August 13, 2015, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, EDT
A potentially responsible party, or PRP, is an individual or company that is potentially responsible for contamination problems at a Superfund site. Whenever possible, EPA requires PRPs to clean up hazardous waste sites the PRP may have contaminated. Many PRPs not only perform the cleanup, but also seek ways to return the site to beneficial use for the community and maximize the extent of land use on the site. Presenters on this webinar will include representatives from several PRP groups who have taken an active role in facilitating the beneficial use of sites they manage and who have worked collaboratively with EPA over many years to ensure that both the cleanup and the reuse of the property remain protective of human health and the environment.

How to Bring about Ecological Revitalization on Contaminated Lands
April 21, 2015, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, EDT
Ecological revitalization refers to the process of returning land from a contaminated state to one that supports a functioning and sustainable habitat. While the end use of a contaminated property is typically a local decision made with the site owner, EPA actively supports and encourages ecological revitalization, when appropriate, on sites under its cleanup programs. This webinar shared several benefits of ecological revitalization illustrated by case study presentations of various projects across the country. Ecological revitalization topics included habitat restoration, soil amendment usage, urban gardens and pollinator habitat development.
