The LandWell Company has been meeting with the community and interested stakeholders since 1999. Open to the public, these meetings have served to update the community on the progress of the project.
The clean-up effort is voluntary and funded entirely by private dollars. No public funds have or will be used in the entire process.
The new master planned community will feature 526 acres of parks and open space adjacent to the Las Vegas Wash, the River Mountain Loop Trails and the Henderson Birding Preserve offering residents a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities.
The majority of the restoration work is removal of soil. After the soil is removed, more tests will be performed to ensure it meets the most stringent standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for residential development.
The clean-up is being conducted according to and in compliance with all local, state and federal laws. The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection has primary oversight responsibility with Clark County and several agencies also involved.
