Tillamook County Receives EPA – Brownfield Assessment Grant

May 27, 2015

Tillamook County received an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Assessment Grant for the Salmonberry Trail project. The grant establishes funding for assessment of properties considered brownfields, which are vacant or underutilized property where actual or perceived environmental contamination complicates its expansion or redevelopment. The grant monies will be used to complete a brownfields inventory and site ranking, Phase I environmental site assessments (ESAs), Phase II ESAs, cleanup planning, and public involvement activities. The goal of the assessment process is to identify sites that pose the most benefit to the community or trail project through cleanup and/or redevelopment. The EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant process has been established for a period of 3 years (through September 2017).

For further information on the EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant for the Salmonberry Trail, please contact Annette Pampush (503-842-3902 or apampush@co.tillamook.or.us) or Chris Chiola (503-842-3409 or cchiola@co.tillamook.or.us).
