The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a brownfield site “as any land in the United States that is abandoned, idled or underused because redevelopment and/or expansion is complicated by environmental contamination that is either real or perceived.” Thousands of Brownfields sites across the U.S. are suitable properties for redevelopment and new life. These sites are typically subject to existing environmental contamination or other conditions that have prevented property transactions and/or development, thus leaving the sites abandoned and blighted. These sites are most often associated with historical manufacturing; dry-cleaning operations; gas stations and fuel terminals; chemical plants; landfills, and other places where chemicals were present in significant quantities and ultimately resulted in releases to the environment, causing impacts to soil and groundwater.
