Brownfields Redevelopment - Patriot Environmental Management, LLC
Brownfields Redevelopment

Redevelopment of Brownfields properties is advantageous for many reasons, most notably: government incentives and the availability of existing infrastructure. These previously abandoned or unused properties can be redeveloped for productive uses at costs that are far less than developing open spaces.

Effective redevelopment of Brownfields properties includes some level of environmental activity. The developer and/or property owner must be cognizant of the environmental concerns at the property, particularly when redevelopment plans may alter and affect contaminated portions of the property.

Although government agencies provide multiple incentives to encourage redevelopment of these properties, the redevelopment activities must be conducted in accordance with federal, state, and local environmental regulations. This requirement may necessitate proper management of contaminated media on-site, and may require off-site treatment/disposal of this material if it cannot be managed effectively on-site. Patriot Environmental Management has the capability to work directly with the developer and/or property owner to address these environmental concerns in the most cost-effective and time-sensitive manner.

Patriot Environmental Management can offer assistance to the developer by performing the following:

The staff members of Patriot Environmental Management have extensive experience within the Act 2 Program and have successfully completed multiple large ($250,000+), medium ($20,000 to $250,000) and small (<$20,000) scale projects. The successful completion of these projects has allowed our clients to discontinue long-term sampling requirements and receive liability protection from the regulatory agency, indicating that the client has satisfied all of the technical and administrative requirements. Many of these properties have been sold at or above fair market value and without the stigma of potential long-term environmental liability.

A release from future cleanup liability only applies to the contaminants and areas of contamination that are identified. Therefore, the release of liability is only as reliable as the site investigation activities. Unidentified contaminants or areas may result in project re-openers, possibly requiring additional remedial efforts.

The knowledge and experience possessed by the staff of Patriot Environmental Management allows our clients to know that the project will be completed correctly the first time.
