Five Mid-Atlantic Communities Awarded EPA Brownfield Grants

Mid-Atlantic continues to be the go to firm to help municipalities find ways to put abandoned, idled and underutilized properties back into reuse. Mid-Atlantic recently worked with Durham, Kinston, Lenoir, Siler City, and Washington to apply for EPA brownfield grants that were subsequently awarded.  Durham, Lenoir, Siler City and Washington all received $300,000 assessment grants. These grants will be used to conduct Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments at high priority properties within these communities followed up by cleanup and redevelopment planning.  The City of Kinston was awarded a $200,000 cleanup grant to address contamination at the former Harvey Oil site, located adjacent to Grainger Stadium, home of the minor league Wood Duck baseball team. Mid-Atlantic specializes in finding innovative ways for communities to put these type of sites back into productive reuse.
