BROWNFIELD REVITALIZATION & SMART GROWTH
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a brownfield as a property 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. Sustainable Strategies DC can help your community create strategies for brownfield revitalization and leverage EPA, other federal agencies and state resources for brownfield activities that can increase local tax bases, facilitate job growth, utilize existing infrastructure, and improve and protect the environment.
