Brownfields

Could My Community Have Brownfield Sites?

The following brownfield fact sheets provide a simple and visual introduction to brownfields, including:

  • where they may be found; 
  • frequently reported contaminants and ways exposures may occur; 
  • common cleanup methods; and,
  • future reuses of cleaned brownfields. 

These fact sheets can support outreach and help community  organizations and local leaders to identify, address, clean and safely reuse brownfields in ways that meet community needs and reduce environmental and public health threats from unrecognized contaminants and sites.
