North Ridgeville, Avon Lake brownfield sites to be examined by Michael Sangiacomo Cleveland Plain Dealer (OH) September 12, 2014NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio -- A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency $600,000 grant to make environmental assessments on 40 suspected contaminated brownfield sites in Lorain County could bring new life to unused areas and buildings in North Ridgeville and Avon Lake.
In some of the locations in the cities, the traditional idea of a brownfield does not apply.
The term is generally applied to fields where plant life has been killed off, likely because of contamination. The term though is broader, and includes places that may not be contaminated. Sites need to be evaluated to determine if there is contamination, and if found, cleaned up.
When the area is deemed usable, the property can be redeveloped.Regional EPA Administrator Susan Hedman said the county will use the grant to conduct 40 environmental assessments, devise four cleanup plans and pay for some of that work. The EPA has awarded 171 similar grants around the country this year.
