The City’s brownfield selection committee has chosen HR Green, Inc. to implement its EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant. These funds help the community inventory, characterize, assess, and conduct cleanup planning on underutilized sites throughout Waterloo. 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 the grant. HR Green has helped Waterloo secure and execute 16 Brownfields Grants totaling $2.95 million since 2000.
City Council approved a Professional Services Agreement with the consultant at its meeting on March 1, 2021.
