ADEQ Awards Nearly $34,000 in Brownfields Grants to City of Peoria for Old Town Revitalization

ADEQ officials announced today two Brownfields Grant awards ($4,998 and $28,975) to the City of Peoria to perform Phase I/II environmental site assessments (ESAs) at the former Peoria Dry Cleaners and Laundry located in the area of the city's Old Town redevelopment plans at 10456 N. 83rd Ave.

Previous ESAs identified contaminants commonly associated with dry cleaning operations. ADEQ's Brownfields Grant awards are supporting the City of Peoria's plans to revitalize the downtown economy and redevelop Old Town. Work funded by the Brownfields Grants will help determine the extent of the contamination and inform redevelopment decision-making.

ADEQ Brownfields Assistance Program

Established in 2003, ADEQ’s BAP conducts projects through Arizona’s State Response Grant using funds provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. The program has funded more than 70 projects, assisting entities from local governments, schools, hospitals and nonprofits to tribes in completing environmental assessments, cleanup and restoration.

Redeveloping brownfields has the potential to reduce environmental hazards, mitigate public health threats, create new business opportunities, increase tax revenue and restore habitats and blighted areas to productive use. Program funds are limited and available to eligible applicants in the order that they apply and qualify.
