Progress of Norristown Brownfields Recognized

The EPA has recognized Norristown, Pa. for the state’s efforts to revitalize brownfield sites for future development.

Norristown was awarded $400,000 in brownfield grants that year. The grants were provided in order to help assess former industrial sites that could be contaminated with hazardous materials. The funding has enabled Norristown to create an inventory of the parcels and conduct site assessments.

Last fall, EPA awarded $400,000 in brownfields grants to Norristown to help assess former industrial sites that may be contaminated with hazardous materials. The funding enables Norristown to create an inventory of the parcels and conduct site assessments. Funding will also help assist with public participation efforts to help build active community involvement in revitalizing Norristown.

Brownfields initiatives demonstrate how environmental protection and economic development work hand-in-hand,” said EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin. “Once brownfields properties are assessed, cleaned up and redeveloped, communities like Norristown can turn once blighted properties into environmentally safe and productive locations that are ideal for attracting businesses to stimulate the local economy.”
