Green Ideas for Brownfields

This is the Delta Redevelopment Institute’s inaugural brownfields blog. Our goal is to share information that will be developed with major new grant support from the U.S. EPA. Our focus is on identifying sustainable reuse and remediation strategies for brownfield sites in weak market areas. Over the next four years you can read more about:

  • Green economic development opportunities linked to new green policies in the region, such as climate change action plans, green building and waste recycling mandates;
  • Greener cleanup options;
  • Sustainable reuse case studies; and
  • Conference and workshop training opportunities in the Great Lakes region.

We also would love to hear your “brownfield-to-green-job” ideas or share your success story. We hope this blog will give you an opportunity to learn and dialog with other brownfield stakeholders on this topic. For more information, please contact Deb Popely at
