What is Brownfields?
A Brownfields site is a piece of property in which expansion, redevelopment or reuse of the property may be complicated by the presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant. When left idle, Brownfields properties can lay host to numerous health concerns or economic problems such as the well being of humans, animals and livestock, environmental worries, reduced property values or taxes, underused infrastructure, or potential lawsuits. When property owners decide to clean up, redevelop or reuse these properties, unfortunately they are usually presented with numerous challenges. That's where the EMBC can help.
