Pennsylvania has a rich industrial history. Opportunities for economic redevelopment are showcased in DEP's series of
Brownfield Success Stories. A collection of videos feature interviews with public and private partners who describe the vision, planning and re-use of former industrial sites and how challenges were met and overcome. All of DEP's Brownfield videos are located on YouTube.

Brownfield Development Guide
The Brownfield Development Guide draws on DEP's over 20 years of experience in cleaning up more than 6,000 sites and outlines the full spectrum of services and resources available for the often complex steps involved in redeveloping brownfield properties. It seeks to assist a broad audience of private industry, state and local agencies, economic development agencies and redevelopment authorities, local officials, communities, property owners, developers and other stakeholders. DEP fosters and helps to build public-private partnerships, which have proven critical for the timely completion of successful projects.
