Brownfields Project
The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe's Environment Division has entered into a cooperative agreement with the USEPA for a program called Brownfields. The program is designed to assist the Tribe with developing its Brownfields response capacity.

The definition of Brownfields is "real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a pollutant or contaminant. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties protects the environment, reduces blight and takes development pressures off green spaces and working lands."

The Environment Division will be working with the community to develop a community-wide inventory and assessment, and seeking input from community members in the coming months under the agreement. Tribal staff will also receive training in Brownfields activities to better serve the community.

For more information you can visit these websites:

The Environment Division will be providing regular updates and information on Brownfields in the coming weeks.
