Brownfield sites include properties such as abandoned factories, industrial sites, dry cleaners, gas stations, and old buildings with environmental concerns. Redeveloping a brownfield property can be a complex process, requiring considerable planning and implementation efforts due to the potential risk to human health and the environment.

Trihydro staff have managed brownfield sites under various regulatory programs and understand the technical and administrative processes required to move a site through closure to beneficial reuse. We have experience with a variety of hazardous substances and environmental contamination. This experience along with our knowledge of the brownfield grant process allows us to assist clients in maximizing the value of each dollar spent.

Our knowledge of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Brownfields Program and past project experience allows us to identify and screen eligible properties, conduct community outreach, and provide viable cleanup options based on current and future site uses.

Brownfield Funding

BROWNFIELD FUNDING

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA's) Brownfields Program offers a variety of brownfield grants and loans to help property owners assess and remediate contamination at brownfield sites. In addition to obtaining funding from EPA, our team assists in completing brownfield grant applications to obtain funding from multiple other sources, including:

  • State environmental departments
  • Community loans

Community Outreach

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We understand community members have rich histories with the places they call home and we engage stakeholders in the brownfields process to build trust and provide clarity during a complex process. We are committed to building connections and creating space for meaningful public engagement and have experience running educational campaigns and public meetings to explain a project’s vision, drivers, and goals. Through outreach and routine communications, we seek to understand community members' opinions and prioritize understanding the unique needs of residents and businesses alike.

Brownfield Property Inventory and Reuse Options

BROWNFIELD PROPERTY INVENTORY AND REUSE OPTIONS

Communities can use a variety of methods to identify, inventory, and prioritize brownfield properties depending on the community’s specific concerns. Some of the more commonly used methods can be covered through grants and can be completed with help from government-provided and/or grant/community-paid contractors. While regulatory agencies can provide guidance on site eligibility, typically the community determines which properties are a brownfield.
