Is that old gas station, dry cleaners or auto body shop in your town a Brownfield? Is a Brownfield an agricultural field in the winter or one that’s contaminated? It might be both. Brownfields come in all sizes and can be found in most communities, urban and rural. This presentation will focus on the Brownfield basics: types of Brownfields commonly found in communities, what it takes to clean them up, who’s responsible and who’s available to help. The impacts of Brownfields on the community and the environment will also be discussed.
