The Property is located on the St. Lawrence River just east of a major hydroelectric power generation facility that provides access to high-capacity electricity at low costs to qualified high-volume users. The reliability, capacity and costs of electricity made Massena a magnet for heavy manufacturing, and today makes the community ideal for data centers and other operations that require large, steady volumes of electric power. Approximately 95% of the property exists at elevations above the 500-year floodplain, with less than a 0.2% annual chance of flooding.

The market for data centers, cryptocurrencies, cryptocurrency mining and block chain technologies is a significant opportunity. This is a great location in an ideal climate. 

The U.S. EPA has a number of policy and guidance tools that can help stakeholders understand the Superfund program, liability issues and resources that may help return sites to beneficial use.
