Project Title & Description
NYC BF Hazardous Assessment FY14
Under this Cooperative Agreement, the City of New York will develop and implement a program to assess local "brownfields" properties, or properties whose expansion, redevelopment or reuse may be complicated by the presence of hazardous substances. The Community Wide Hazardous Substances Assessment Program will target vacant, abandoned and underutilized commercial and industrial sites to encourage redevelopment. The City of New York will select and assess sites believed to be contaminated specifically with hazardous substances throughout the city. The City of New York will involve residents and other stakeholders surrounding the sites by holding community meetings and sharing information.
