Eight RCRA Brownfields Projects Selected to Expedite Development

Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced the selection of eight Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Brownfields-Targeted Site Efforts (TSE) projects.

TSE projects are an outgrowth of the first RCRA Brownfields Prevention Initiative Pilots, which showed that there are many RCRA sites close to being cleaned up and redeveloped.

However, these sites need a boost to get to the next level of cleanup, and TSE projects help by having EPA regional offices provide technical assistance for stakeholder outreach, community involvement and additional sampling, if needed.

The EPA expects to publish the results of these projects by next summer.
