BROWNFIELDS PROGRAM

Headwaters RC&D has received funding from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct Phase I and II Brownfields assessments in the seven-county region and will be soliciting eligible projects beginning immediately.  The funds are applicable to sites that have been impacted by petroleum as well as hazardous materials and are designed to support the redevelopment of the property, leading to economic growth.

What is a Brownfield?

A Brownfield is a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. It is estimated that there are more than 450,000 brownfields in the U.S. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties increases local tax bases, facilitates job growth, utilizes existing infrastructure, takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land, and both improves and protects the environment. Learn more about types of sites and contaminants reported at brownfields and community actions for their cleanup and reuse.
