Brownfield Revitalization Coalition

Brownfield Revitalization Coalition


A “brownfield” is property where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by actual or perceived environmental issues. By completing environmental site studies that would aid in overcoming redevelopment challenges, it is possible to transform brownfields from liabilities into assets that will benefit both property owners and the community.

In 2020, the City of The Dalles, the Port of The Dalles, and Wasco County formed a coalition and received a $600,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The consultant firm Stantec is advising the coalition in implementing a program to use these funds to provide environmental site assessment and other services to aid owners of brownfield properties located in The Dalles in initiating property revitalization.
