The redevelopment of Brownfields properties boosts the local economies by providing jobs, increasing the tax base, reducing blight and improving resident’s quality of life by providing cleaner land and water.
EMC has worked on Brownfields redevelopment projects at current, past and future industrial parks, including sites with former metal plating and dry cleaning facilities, and has provided environmental services and alternative funding sources services:
Phase I ESAs
Phase II ESAs
Alternative Funding Sources
Brownfield Site Assessment Grant Incentives (SAGI);
Petroleum Remediation Grant Incentives (PRGI);
Site Remediation Grants, Community Block Development Grants;
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants; and
State Revolving Loan fund projects.
EMC can match alternative sources of financing to Brownfields properties that otherwise may be deemed ineligible for traditional grants. These value added services enhance the financial contributions from state and federal grant dollars.
The collective knowledge and skills at both the field and regulatory levels provides EMC’s clients with the insight needed to effectively evaluate Brownfields sites, including the Risk Integrated System of Closure (RISC) guidance documents.
