Revitalization and Reuse

Brownfields are defined as those properties that contain, or potentially contain, a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant that hinders the property’s reuse. The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awards Brownfields grants to local governments, states, tribes, and non-profit organizations to assess and clean up brownfields, including old abandoned gas stations and other facilities impacted by petroleum contamination.  For more information on this subject, see “EPA Brownfields Grants For Old Abandoned Gas Stations And Other Petroleum Brownfields. (PDF: 2 pps, 107KB)

Additional information relating specifically to abandoned gas stations may be found it the “Reuse of Abandoned Gas Station Sites” information sheet. (PDF: 3 pps, 619KB)
