Project Title & Description
Biddeford Cleanup Cooperative Agreement
This assistance agreement will provide funding to the City of Biddeford to cleanup a Brownfields site in Biddeford, Maine. The Maine Energy Recovery Company (MERC) facility was constructed as a waste to energy facility in the early 1980s, and shut down in 2012. The goal of the project to be funded by this cooperative agreement is to remediate the MERC facility and to facilitate the properties� redevelopment as a mixed use project adjacent to the existing mill district. Brownfields are real property, the expansion, development or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.
