EPA Brownfields Program

EPA's Brownfields Program empowers states, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. A brownfield site 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. In 2002, the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act was passed to help states and communities around the country cleanup and revitalize brownfields sites. Under this law, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through four competitive grant programs: assessment grants, revolving loan fund grants, cleanup grants, and job training grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Cleanup Grant

$200,000 for hazardous substances

EPA has selected the City of Marysville for a brownfields cleanup grant. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to clean up the Geddes Marina at 1326 1st Street. Although the property historically has been used as a marina, the city has ceased renewing leases and is removing several boat houses located within the marina. The site is contaminated with hazardous substances, including arsenic, cadmium, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. This contamination likely resulted from past activities, including fuel and oil storage and handling, boat sanding and painting, and stormwater discharge from the adjacent mill site. Grant funds also will be used to conduct groundwater monitoring and support community involvement activities.
