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 petroleum

EPA has selected the East Decatur Greenway for a brownfields cleanup grant. Petroleum grant funds will be used to clean up the property at 890 Columbia Drive. Originally developed as a gas station in the 1940s and also operated as a repair shop, the one-acre property was abandoned in 1999 and left to deteriorate. The site is contaminated with petroleum-related compounds, including volatile and semivolatile organic compounds and metals. Grant funds also will be used to provide outreach to the community through presentations at neighborhood schools, community meetings, and a project brochure.
