The GSA Property Remedial Action in Watertown, MA is a recent, multi-faceted, collaborative project that transformed a 13 acre contaminated, unused, urban brownfield site into an essential community greenspace and wetlands habitat. The land provides recreational areas, flood mitigation, and wildlife conservation.
After 94 years of federal ownership and 35 years of pressure from Watertown officials on behalf of their constituents, the political and financial conditions aligned. The project was able to be funded, achieve remediation goals, and return the site to DCR ownership, where it would “fit into the DCR’s Charles River unit” and create a greenspace corridor in the heart of the city, according to Michael Misslin, Chief Engineer with the DCR.
