Brownfield sites may be small parcels in your local neighborhood or large abandoned industrial properties. The presence of contamination - or the fear of potential contamination - and the desire to redevelop/re-use a property is all it takes to be considered a candidate for brownfield incentives. Here are several ways of finding potential Brownfields in Massachusetts.
Search Known Disposal Sites On-Line
There are over 40,000 reported releases of oil or hazardous material in Massachusetts. Any of these may be eligible for Brownfield incentives for further redevelopment activities.
