Boeing Recognized for Leadership in Revitalization of Superfund Site

The EPA will present an award to Boeing for its leadership to help revitalize the Chemical Commodities, Inc. (CCI) Superfund Site in Olathe, KS. Boeing has worked with the Olathe community to install a pollinator habitat and educational trail for monarch butterflies during their pollination season throughout the Midwest.

Boeing will be presented with the Leading Environmentalism and Forwarding Sustainability Award (LEAFS), the first time this award has been presented in Region 7. Representatives from Haley and Aldrich, Monarch Watch, Pollinator Partnership, and the CCI Community Advisory Group also will be recognized. Boeing and the Olathe community have worked together in create a pollinator habitat and educational trail for monarch butterflies during their pollination season throughout the Midwest; the site is designed to educate the public about pollination.

Boeing’s support to redevelop this site extends beyond the EPA requirement to clean up hazardous waste in communities. The EPA Reuse Initiative has been successful in facilitating the redevelopment of Superfund sites across the nation. This award recognizes Boeing for working with the community to enhance the site and to bring change to the area by giving back to the community a productive and useful property.

To help the community become involved in this long-term reuse project, an Adopt-A-Garden concept has been established to find community organizations such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, science classes from local schools, or other entities that have a community involvement requirement to donate their time in maintaining the pollinator beds.
