Description Brownfields are properties that are abandoned or underused because of environmental contamination from past industrial or commercial practices. Often the potential liability associated with contamination complicates business development, property transactions or expansion on the property. Now, all over the country, communities, developers, government officials, and others, are working to change the way we manage and regulate brownfields to encourage redevelopment of these sites. The State of Washington and the US Environmental Protection Agency are embracing brownfields redevelopment as an important program. This resource guide will point you in the right direction to get answers to your questions and help with brownfield projects.
