- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates the number of brownfields at more than 450,000 across rural and urban areas nationwide.
- The U.S. EPA selected 227 communities to receive $147.5 million in Brownfields Assessment Cleanup Grants and Revolving Loan Funds.
- Of the numbers projected for increased housing and jobs between 2013 and 2030, redeveloped brownfield sites could support 11%-13% of that growth.
The environmental, economical, fiscal and energy benefits of developing brownfields represent immense potential for surrounding communities poised for growth. The cleanup process is cost- and time-intensive, however, and requires professional expertise to ensure successful outcomes for such extensive redevelopment projects.
Fehr Graham helps you gather information for a comprehensive analysis of brownfield sites before development. From conducting Environmental Site Assessments and performing due diligence on land transactions to developing remediation plans and securing funding and addressing regulatory issues, we help ensure successful outcomes for brownfield development.
