What are we going to call it? Eastwick Everest? The Hill in the ‘Hood? Southwest Summit? Clearview Crest? (members of the Eastwick Friends and Neighbors Coalition and the Eastwick Lower
Darby Creek Area Community Advisory Group members please note!)

The forest-covered rise which was once the poisonous Clearview landfill will soon be a real asset to the community. That will happen when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finishes its work of remediation of this superfund site.

But as yet, it has no name?

But the reality is there with the planting of some 5,000 trees and shrubs on top of the new soil cap the graces the sides of the former dump – with another 5,000 more to come!

There are other components that will appear, for instance, a new wetland around the edges of the planted

area to catch any polluted runoff that seeps off the reclaimed area.
