PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (ENS) - Philadelphia will host redevelopers 
of contaminated properties on February 12 when the Northeast Brownfields 
Development Forum comes to the Philadelphia Marriott Hotel.


One session on financing opportunities will examine a case study of the 
13.7 acre Bishop Tube property in Chester County.

Bishop Tube was founded in 1842 for the manufacture of gold and platinum 
alloys for technical and industrial uses. It was also used as a metal 
fabrication facility in the 1950s. However, after a number of different 
owners, operations stopped in 1999, leaving behind a legacy of 
contamination that included TCE and heavy metals.
