Former brownfield green-lighted for development Matt Cunningham Soapbox Cincinnati (OH) May 24, 2011An eight-year-long city initiative to clean up a heavily contaminated 'brownfield' reached a culminating point this month. The Ohio EPA cleared the way for redevelopment of the Queensgate South industrial/ business site on Mehring Way. The former junkyard is now a potential development site featuring 17 acres zoned for office, industrial or high-tech use.
"That was a long time coming," said Cincinnati Business Development Manager William Fischer. He explained that 50 years of use as a scrap yard had left the roughly 16-acre site contaminated with PCBs, heavy metals and petroleum products. This meant that any remediation work would have to meet the approval of both state and federal officials.
"There were contaminants on the site that were regulated by both the US and Ohio EPA," Fischer said. "It was a lot of work to coordinate those cleanups."
