Brownfields Information

 

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Brownfields Program is dedicated to  identifying, assessing, addressing/remediating these sites to improve the quality of life for tribal citizens and the health of the environment by removing these eyesores from the cultural landscape. Any Brownfields sites which have utilized Federal funding are required to maintain a public record. Currently no sites have been addressed or assessed using Federal funding. As such there is no public record.

 

 

Definition:

With certain legal exclusions and additions, the term "brownfield site" means real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.

Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties protects the environment, reduces blight, and takes development pressures off greenspaces and working lands.

The Brownfields Site definition is found in Public Law 107-118 (H.R. 2869) - "Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act" signed into law January 11, 2002

 

 

 

*Public Law 107-118 (H.R. 2869): "Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act" – “The 2002 Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act (the "Brownfields Law") codified many of the United States' Environmental Protection Agency or EPA practices, policies and guidance. The Brownfields Law expanded EPA's assistance by providing new tools for the public and private sectors to promote sustainable Brownfields cleanup and reuse.”
