State to provide free assessment on old hospital

Daniel Phelps has been appointed as project manager for the phase one assessment of the old Logan County Hospital.

Phelps will be conducting the survey through the state's Energy and Environmental Cabinet, which provides free environmental assessment for projects that may qualify as brownfields.

In United States city planning, "brownfield land" (or simply a brownfield) is land previously used for industrial purposes or certain commercial uses. The land may be contaminated by low concentrations of hazardous waste or pollution and has the potential to be reused once it is cleaned up.

It is expected the old hospital, which the city of Russellville recently purchased for $150,000 from William Forgy, may contain asbestos and lead paint among other contaminants.
