Brownfields 2013 Conference
Sustainable Communities Start Here – Brownfields 2013
May 15-17, 2013
The National Brownfields Conference is the largest event in the nation that focuses onenvironmental revitalization and economic redevelopment. As defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a brownfield is a property that has a presence, or potential presence, of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants, thus creating complications during its expansion, redevelopment, or reuse. EPA’s Brownfields Program is designed to empower states, communities, and other stakeholders in economic redevelopment to work together in a timely manner to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse these properties.
Every 18 months the National Brownfields Conference convenes, attracting over 6,000 stakeholders in brownfields redevelopment and cleanup to share knowledge about sustainable reuse and celebrate the program’s success. For more information, please visit http://www.brownfieldsconference.org/en/home.
