GLRPPR Sector Resource: Addressing Water Contamination through Brownfields Cleanup and Redevelopment

Title:
Addressing Water Contamination through Brownfields Cleanup and Redevelopment

Abstract:
The cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields properties can be complicated by the presence of contamination in various forms. One type of media affected by contamination on brownfields is water, which includes ground water, surface water, and drinking water. Even brownfields not adjacent to waterfront areas or significant bodies of water can affect the quality of nearby ground water, which can then migrate to other areas causing further contamination. EPA's Brownfields Assessment, Cleanup, and Revolving Loan Funds grants can help identify and address water contamination issues at brownfields properties.
