Mid-Atlantic was selected by the Town of Siler City to provide environmental and brownfield consulting services for the next five years following a qualifications based selection process. Initially Mid-Atlantic staff will help prepare grant applications for EPA Brownfields Assessment grants. If awarded, Mid-Atlantic staff will conduct Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments at high priority properties within the town. Following the assessments, Mid-Atlantic will provide assistance with cleanup and redevelopment planning and future grant writing opportunities. Mid-Atlantic will also assist with community outreach efforts designed to keep the public informed and involved in building a sustainable Brownfields Program.
