(Dallas, Texas – January 26, 2007) The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $100,000 to the Railroad Commission of Texas to support its Brownfields Response Program. Brownfields are properties that may have redevelopment challenges because of the presence or potential presence of hazardous substances or pollutants. EPA’s brownfields program provides funds to assess, clean up and reuse such properties. The Railroad Commission will use the funds granted by EPA to help program applicants assess site contamination, plan for cleanup, and, in some limited cases, assist in or oversee cleanup that leads to redevelopment. Railroad Commission staff will also track the outcomes, benefits and measures of the program.
