Brownfield Remediation

Brownfields are defined as properties whose use or redevelopment is restricted because they contain, or have the potential to contain, hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants. The Community Reinvestment Department is working to assess and clean up brownfield sites in the City of Columbus. Some examples of common brownfields include former gas stations, drycleaners, industrial sites, or former agricultural land. Brownfield sites that have been assessed and cleaned up may be designated for redevelopment.
