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.
