Lebanon seeks grant to clean up brownfields

Lebanon — Continuing recent strides to ensure Lebanon is prepped for new economic development, the city is seeking a $400,000 Environmental Protection Agency grant to address the city’s brownfields, said Mayor Huck Lewis.

A brownfield is a property that’s difficult to develop because it is contaminated or believed to be contaminated, said Beth A. Grigsby of ATC Associates, who is working with the city on this project. Contaminants may be asbestos, lead paint, as well as controlled substances like on sites of former meth labs.
