      Cleaning up and reinvesting in brownfields typically provides these community benefits, at least when the site is located somewhere within the built-up area of a metro area: Increases overall appeal and attractiveness of the community for economic development. One of the major concerns with Brownfield development is the cost of cleaning up the area. However, with the passing of the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act, there are now funds available from the Federal Government to help in the cost of cleaning.

5: What clean-up methods are used on brownfield sites. The choice of methods and technologies for a brownfield site clean-up will be influenced by several factors, such as site conditions, local permit restrictions, community concerns, clean-up endpoints, and time and budget constraints.

Brownfield Sites. In general, a "Brownfield site", as defined in the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act (SBLRBR), is real property, the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.

From my perspective, the book provides an invaluable guide for anyone looking to undertake a 5/5(1). Brownfields Road Map to Understanding Options for Site Investigation and Cleanup. The new Brownfields Road Map publication and companion website provide a general outline of how to assess and clean up a brownfields site and introduce stakeholders to a range of technology options and available resources.

Brownfields sites are well suited to using the Triad approach, where limited funding and intended reuse strongly influence cleanup. Inherent in the Triad approach is the need for cooperation and collaboration among the many stakeholders in the process. Clean Up Brownfield Sites Significant amounts of land within towns and cities are contaminated because of previous uses.

The technology and expertise exist to convert most of these sites from a liability into an asset, fit for new buildings or for open space.

The EPA Brownfields Program’s goal is “to empower states [1], tribes [2], communities, and other stakeholders in economic development to work together in a timely manner to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields.” Section (a) State and Tribal Response Program funding can be used to create new or to enhance.

Brownfield Site Acquisition remediation-based risks – the costs of identifying and characterizing site contamination, cleaning it up, complying with federal and state regulations governing contamination along the way, particularly with regard to the site investigation and clean up performance.

To achieve these goals, the Brownfields Program provides funds and technical assistance to states, local communities, tribes and other stakeholders in economic redevelopment to work together to prevent, assess clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfield sites. More Brownfields Information.
