Brownfields Cleanup & Redevelopment

What is a Brownfield?

A Brownfield is defined as property or mine-scarred land where the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of it is complicated by the real or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, contaminants controlled substances, petroleum or petroleum products.

EPA Region 10's Brownfields Program works to clean up and redevelop land in the Pacific Northwest, making it easier for such lands to become vital, functioning parts of their communities. The material here describes Brownfields activities within Region 10's states and tribal lands. The national Brownfields home page provides information on applying for Brownfields grants, recent legislation, news, and more.
