Two communities in northern Illinois were among 149 that received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants this week. The cities of Rockford and South Beloit will each use a $300,000 Community-wide Assessment Grant to fund environmental assessment and cleanup planning for contaminated sites affected by hazardous substances, pollutants and/or petroleum.
Both cities are longtime Fehr Graham clients. These awards represent a major step in transforming and redeveloping blighted properties throughout the community.
