Environmental sensitivity is the core facet of the project.
The site was once a listed as a Federal Superfund site due to decades of textile dye contamination. Our partner, Clariant Corporation, has spent upwards of $40 million to clean up the contamination and the site was removed from the Superfund List in February 2012. Clean-up efforts will continue until all contamination is removed and we are investigating methods to expedite the process.
Reventure Park has also set aside nearly 200 acres in a conservation easement that protects the land along Long Creek and the frontage along the Catawba River. We have also donated land to the Catawba Land Conservancy to connect the Carolina Thread Trail to the U.S. National White Water Center.
There are also numerous wetland mitigation and habitat restoration projects that benefit the many species at Reventure Park.You can see some of the species we’ve documented to date by visiting our photo section.
