Overview of the EPA Brownfields Program

EPA's Brownfields Program empowers states, communities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. A brownfield site is real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. On January 11, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act. Under the Brownfields Law, EPA provides financial assistance to eligible applicants through four competitive grant programs: assessment grants, revolving loan fund grants, cleanup grants, and job training grants. Additionally, funding support is provided to state and tribal response programs through a separate mechanism.

Cleanup Grant

$197,520 for petroleum

EPA has selected Lane County for a brownfields cleanup grant. Grant funds will be used to develop plans and install a dual-phased (vapor and groundwater) remediation system and groundwater monitoring wells at the McVay Highway property, the site of a former gas station. Funds also will be used to conduct community involvement activities. Although all five underground storage tanks (USTs) on the property were decommissioned and removed by the previous owner, site assessments revealed groundwater contaminated with hydrocarbons near and downgradient from the removed USTs.
