EPA Brownfields Grant 

In 2018, the City of West Sacramento (City) pursued and was awarded a $300,000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfield Assessment Grant for the Pioneer Bluff and Stone Lock Districts to complete multiple Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), with a portion of the Grant funds allocated for reuse planning and related community engagement efforts. 

 The EPA Brownfield Program empowers states, cities, and other stakeholders to work together to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. 

What is a brownfield? Almost every community has a vacant or underutilized property that may have contamination from past uses. These "brownfields" may be eligible to receive assistance for assessment, addressing potential contamination and planning for safe reuse. More information can be found by visiting EPA's Brownfields Program webpage. 

Check out the Stone Lock Plaza Story Map to see how these awarded grant funds were used.
