State, EPA officials announce $800,000 in brownfield assessment grants for Vermont
Soils the city moved from a waterfront brownfield and left exposed in Leddy Park were found to have various levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), lead, arsenic and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), tests now show.
Three adjacent brownfields that face redevelopment are essentially protecting the 38-acre Superfund site Barge Canal. The liability for disturbing the site, which finished a remediation plan in 1983, rests on 23 companies and individuals.
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, in collaboration with the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, is excited to announce that Northfield, Vermont will receive a $43,000 brownfields area-wide planning grant.
Standing a block from Main Street, Gov. Peter Shumlin today announced two grants that will allow the City of Barre to address flood risks, clean up environmental contamination and redevelop a central part of its downtown known as Enterprise Aly.
Redeveloped brownfields almost always create jobs, first during the construction phase and then again as businesses, restaurants, health services and housing take the place of once abandoned and blighted space in the heart of the community.
“The State and the regional planning commissions have done a great job of getting our funding for brownfield redevelopment out to Vermont communities,” the Governor said. “Redevelopment of these sites has led to the creation of jobs, new housing and more green space.”
