CHICAGO - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on May 6 that it has selected Green Bay and Brillion for $800,000 and $500,000, respectively, to assess and clean up contaminated properties under the Brownfields program.


“These communities are ready to move forward with redevelopment; they just lacked the funding to take that next step,” EPA Regional Administrator Kurt Thiede said. “EPA’s Brownfields grants help jump-start the process by providing support for assessments and cleanups.”

The EPA has selected the City of Brillion for a $500,000 Brownfields Cleanup Grant, with the funds to be used to clean up the former Brillion Iron Works property at 200 Park Avenue and 234 East Ryan Street.


This is a brief bulletin. A complete story will be featured in the May 14 print edition of The Brillion News.
