The Waterloo City Council approved a professional services agreement with HR Green, Inc. to help implement the City’s EPA Brownfields Assessment Grants on November 13, 2017.  Grant funds allow the City to inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct cleanup planning on brownfields sites throughout the community.  A special emphasis is being placed on properties located within the Broadway Street Corridor and the urban core.  Officials anticipate being able to complete approximately 15 and 8 Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments, respectively, under each grant.  HR Green has helped Waterloo secure and execute 14 Brownfields Grants totaling $2.65 million since 2000.
