GLRPPR Sector Resource: Checklist: How to Address Changing Climate Concerns in an Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA)

Title:
Checklist: How to Address Changing Climate Concerns in an Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA)

Abstract:
An Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) typically includes sections describing the background and current conditions of the site (maps, previous uses, assessment findings, reuse goals), applicable regulations and cleanup standards, an evaluation of cleanup alternatives and a recommended remedial action. The evaluation of cleanup alternatives is based on the effectiveness, ease of implementation and cost of each remedial action. As directed under EPA's Climate Change Adaptation Plan, the ABCA must also include a discussion of observed and forecasted climate change conditions for the area of the project and the associated site-specific risk factors.
