Wasteland Revival

After four years of remediation followed by a decade of site restoration and monitoring, the EPA removed the 90-acre Reed Keppler Park in West Chicago from its National Priorities List. Today, the park is home to an aquatic center, athletic fields, playgrounds, and a 5,300-square-foot skatepark.

Alumnae Valley on the Wellesley College campus exemplifies a successful brownfield restoration project in which the design and remediation teams collaborated early in the project.
