Brownfields site assessments

By giving a more accurate picture of the extent of site contamination (or lack thereof), the Brownfields Program helps communities revitalize land perceived to be a drain on the local economy.

  • The program is available for public and nonprofit groups interested in better understanding the environmental issues potentially hindering redevelopment of property.
  • With the assistance of qualified contractors, we conduct an environmental assessment using record research, sample collection and analysis.
  • Preferential assistance is given to groups who already have redevelopment goals in place for a specific site and where those goals provide a clear public benefit (e.g., job creation, enhancement of the tax base, creation of a public amenity).
