Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Columbia County, Wisconsin
Cambria, Portage part of growing interest for cleanup grants

Two Columbia County communities are part of a recent surge of interest 
in using state grants to clean up abandoned and seized property with 
contamination issues.

Portage and Cambria both recently were approved for brownfield site 
assessment grants to be used on potentially contaminated sites both 
communities recently took hold of.

"More and more people are having properties get to the point where they 
can use this money," said Darsi Foss, chief of the Brownfields and 
Outreach Section Bureau for Remediation and Redevelopment of the state 
Department of Natural Resources. "Local governments are feeling more and 
more comfortable."

Brownfield grants are state-funded and were born out of a group formed 
to help the Legislature with public policy. The grants, which come from 
a $1.7 million annual allotment, are for local governments to use on 
sites without a clear contaminator.
