Re: EPA Opportunities for Petroleum Brownfields Report
The United States Environmental Protection Agency recently released a report on petroleum brownfields titled “Opportunities for Petroleum Brownfields” (EPA 510-R-11-002). It is available on EPA's website at www.epa.gov/oust/pubs/pbfopportunities.htm.
EPA developed this 51-page report to give stakeholders information and examples they can use to assess, clean up, and safely reuse petroleum sites in ways that can benefit communities. The report presents five categories of petroleum brownfields, examples of successful reuse projects within those categories, and funding and technical assistance resources for petroleum brownfields revitalization.
You or your environmental commission may want to examine these and other documents on the EPA’s petroleum brownfields website at www.epa.gov/oust/petroleumbrownfields.
If you have questions or comments about this new report, please contact Robin Hughes at the EPA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-603-7149.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
