|The goal of brownfield remediation is to clean up contamination so it no longer poses a risk to human health or the environment. What needs to happen at a site to meet this goal will differ greatly according to the type and level of contamination, site characteristics, planned end use, and the state requirements. Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR or ‘See Clear’) experts can advise you of your options and shepherd you through the remediation of your brownfield.
