Local Brownfield Program Support

WVU TAB offers training to communities across Region 3 in how to develop inventories, how to engage the community in that process, and how to prioritize identified properties using locally determined criteria.

Brownfield inventories help prepare communities to pursue brownfield projects, apply for EPA assessment and cleanup funds, and ultimately reduce threats to the health and welfare of sensitive populations while returning contaminated properties to reuse.

Our team conducts virtual trainings on brownfield inventories, including the utility of having an inventory and the tools available for implementation throughout the region. We work with a select number of communities to train volunteers to survey and identify problem properties, research property history information, identify community priorities, and create inventories of properties. Maps of community inventories will be used to overlay census tracts, including sensitive population data and health access data.

Additionally, our team of experts is available to answer questions and provide support to your local brownfield program or project. To request assistance or learn more about the inventory training available, contact us at wvutab@mail.wvu.edu.
