Rockford gets EPA money for brownfield sites

April 20, 2010- $750,000 is on the way to Rockford to help the city investigate possible environmental contamination and develop clean-up programs for old industrial sites. The money comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and makes up the total of two brownfield grants.

$400,000 of the EPA money is a community wide grant. Half goes to assessments at petroleum sites, like old gas stations. The other half goes to a variety of old industrial sites, such as by the old Ingersoll plant, the N. Madison area, downtown, and the Kishwaukee corridor.
