The WVLSC has been awarded a $300K Brownfields Assessment Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to conduct environmental assessments. In coordination with local communities, we will identify and select properties with high redevelopment potential to perform up to 12 Phase I and 6 Phase II assessments over a three-year period.
While the primary focus of this grant is a five-mile stretch of riverfront in Monongalia County that encompasses Morgantown, Westover, Granville, and Star City, the funds can be used to assess properties anywhere in West Virginia. Priority will be given to commercial/industrial properties that are candidates for entry into the WVLSC Land Bank to be remediated prior to being put to new use.
If you know of a property that might be a fit, please let us know!
