Brownfields Road Map to Understanding Options for Site Investigation and Cleanup
This online engineering PDH course provides a general description of the steps in the investigation and cleanup of brownfields sites, and introduces Brownfields stakeholders to the range of technologies and resources available to them. The Road Map provides valuable information for stakeholders typically involved in or affected by redevelopment of Brownfields sites, whether through public projects, private development or public-private partnerships.
Brownfields sites are defined as “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” (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended by the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002, §101(39)). The cleanup of Brownfields sites improves and protects the environment and may result in many benefits for the local community.
Revitalizing Brownfields sites has the potential to create benefits throughout the community, including community involvement in the project, job creation, and an increase in residential property values once a nearby Brownfields site is assessed or cleaned up.
