What is a Brownfield?

Does your community have properties with an environmental past?
Do you have previously mined lands? 
Are there former dry cleaning establishments in town? 
If so, you could have a brownfield. 

There are an estimated 8,000 brownfields across the state. They include sites that are abandoned or underutilized such as old gas stations, mine-scarred lands, factories, schools, hospitals and meth labs.



The Department for Environmental Protection provides programs and services to help with these properties through the Divisions of Compliance Assistance and Waste's Superfund Branch. Program employees work hand in hand to provide expert guidance ranging from grant writing and funding source help to technical and site management assistance.
