Abandoned Waste to Revitalized Space: EPA’s Brownfield’s Program
Administrator Jackson was in Lansing, Michigan today to announce more than $76 million in new investments across the country that will help redevelop contaminated properties, boost local economies and help create jobs while protecting public health. EPA’s Brownfields grants are used to assess and clean up abandoned industrial and commercial properties like deserted gas stations or closed smelters. There are an estimated 450,000 abandoned and contaminated waste sites in America.
