The goal of this project is to identify, prioritize and assess Brownfields properties and to conduct cleanup planning for the sustainable redevelopment of contaminated properties. Brownfield sites can include residential, commercial or industrial parcels of land.
Many communities served by UERPC have utilized the Brownfields Assessment Grants to return properties exhibiting signs of potential contamination back to a productive reuse. This process helps communities achieve many benefits. Contact Rachelle Howe for more information.
