Join us for a presentation on Brownfield Redevelopment and Soil and Solid Waste Beneficial Reuse by Gary Rozmus from GEI Consultants!

Brownfield Redevelopment and Soil and Solid Waste Beneficial Reuse

It is estimated that there are more than 450,000 Brownfield sites nationwide; of these sites, 60,000 are located in New York State, and thousands are located on Long Island. Currently, Long Island is not taking full advantage of the benefits provided by the NYS Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) and is behind the curve in the remediation and redevelopment of its contaminated properties as compared to New York City and the rest of New York State.

Many contaminated sites on Long Island are located in downtown areas and along transportation corridors, which are in desperate need of strategic, area-wide redevelopment. The reuse of Brownfield sites can serve as a catalyst for the environmentally responsible development of buildings, homes, and neighborhoods on Long Island. 

This presentation will describe the tools available to enable successful reuse of contaminated sites. This will include a presentation on the NYS BCP, NYC Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP), NYS Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) program, NYS soil and solid waste management and beneficial reuse regulations, Suffolk and Nassau County Landbank programs, and other Brownfield redevelopment tools.
