Brownfield sites are abandoned or underused industrial and commercial facilities available for re-use. Expansion or redevelopment of such a facility may be complicated by real or perceived environmental contaminations.

ATCOG has again been awarded the EPA Brownfields Combined Hazardous Substance and Petroleum Assessment grant funds for grant period September 2009 through August 2012. The goal of this project is to coordinate the work of area environmental service firms to conduct Phase I and II site assessments. It will coordinate clean-up activities and other activities to encourage potential economic development and job creation, reuse of existing infrastructures, and overall will improve community needs, as well as encourage healthy and safe environments.
