EPA Awards $250K for Charles Town Brownfield Site
The federal Environmental Protection Agency is awarding $250,000 to renovate a contaminated site in the Eastern Panhandle.
The EPA announced the additional brownfields assistance for Charles Town on Friday. The money will fuel cleanup at the Public Works Yard site next to the brownfield restoration effort at the Supertane plant.
In 2012, EPA awarded a $650,000 revolving loan largely used for the Supertane site.
The location will become the Evitts Run Conservancy, which will include recreational space, a public park and stormwater runoff control along Evitts Run Creek.
The loan fund offers loans and sub-grants for cleanup efforts.
Charles Town's award Friday is one of 31 grants nationwide totaling $11 million for brownfield cleanup.
