Many communities across the country have brownfields sites, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines as abandoned, idle, and under-used industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Concerns about liability, cost, and potential health risks associated with brownfields sites may prompt businesses to migrate to 'greenfields' outside the city. Left behind are communities burdened with environmental contamination, declining property values, and increased unemployment. The EPA established the Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative to enable states, site planners, and other community stakeholders to work together in a timely manner to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields sites.
