Brownsfield Assessment Project

Schenectady County has received a grant from the United States Environmental Protection Agency for $350,000 to identify, assess and evaluate Brownfields in Schenectady County. Brownfields are sites where real or suspected environmental contamination prevents full economic use of the site. Because the contamination may only be suspected, investigation alone may free sites up for development or for recreational uses.  Otherwise the investigation is the first step toward receiving state and/or federal money to cleanup the site.

Visit the site below for further information about the proposed project. Information on the project will be added to this website as it is available.
