Brownfields Basics Webinar
October 29, 2020
1:00 to 3:00 pm
Please join us to learn the basics of Brownfields. A Brownfield is a real property whose use or reuse may be complicated by a presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant. Many former industrial and commercial activities are indeed Brownfields. Pennsylvania’s voluntary cleanup program, known as Act 2, presents a clear path to address brownfields in the commonwealth and bring these properties back to productive use in your community.
In this webinar, you will hear from experts from the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), PA Department of Community and Economic Development, US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), New Jersey Institute of Technology's Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities Program (NJIT TAB) and a local partner to bring you real-world examples of projects that have gone through the Act 2 process. So, whether you are a seasoned veteran of Brownfields or new to the concept, you are invited to acquire the knowledge and contacts to help you navigate through the processes of obtaining funding and understanding the Act 2 voluntary cleanup program.
National Brownfields Training Conference
The goal of the National Brownfields Training Conference is to provide a networking and learning environment for the Brownfields community. We are working to ensure that the venue and travel arrangements will be as safe and healthy as possible so conference attendees can continue to experience the valuable in-person education and networking opportunities that have defined the Brownfields Conference since 1996. Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and having these considerations in mind, Brownfields 2021 will be rescheduled from its current April dates.
Brownfields 2021 will now be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma from September 27-30, 2021.
