Cleanup Funded for National Aquarium's Baltimore Brownfield

BALTIMORE, Maryland - Funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's brownfields program will help the National Aquarium's Center for Aquatic Life and Conservation clean up a degraded 13 acre site along the Patapsco River, making it fit for the new center, an environmental demonstration park, a public access trail and a fishing pier.

EPA has selected the nonprofit Center for Aquatic Life and Conservation to receive a $200,000 brownfields grant that will be used to clean up the center's Middle Branch site at 101 West Dickman Street in Baltimore.

"Brownfields initiatives demonstrate how environmental protection and economic development work hand-in-hand," said Donald Welsh, administrator for EPA's mid-Atlantic region. "This funding will help reclaim properties that have been unused for years and turn those sites into assets for the community, the environment and the economy."
