EPA awards $1.2 million in brownfield funding


SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The federal government has awarded
$1.2 million to two northern Indiana cities to help them redevelop old
industrial sites.
South Bend and Plymouth are both receiving
$600,000 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the
brownfield redevelopment funding announced Thursday.
EPA Region 5
Administrator Susan Hedman says the funding "will help transform
contaminated sites into redevelopment opportunities."
announcement was made at Ignition Park, a former brownfield site in
South Bend that was cleaned up in 2011 and redeveloped with EPA funding.
Bend and Plymouth are among 171 U.S. communities receiving 2014
brownfield grants from EPA to clean up contaminated properties and boost
local economies by redeveloping former brownfield sites.
