Brownfields and Environmental Cleanup: An Introductory Community Workshop

Brownfields are abandoned, idled, or under-used industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination.
Brownfields are properties that are contaminated or which might be contaminated. Preparing them for redevelopment is challenging, both legally and technically. But the people who live, work, study, or recreate on or near Brownfields have a key role to play in cleanup and development decisions. This workshop, initiated by CPEO-which conducts similar workshops across the United States-is designed to help residents of South Central Louisiana influence Brownfields projects to better protect public health and redevelop impaired property.
