INTERACTIVE MAP OF BROWNFIELDS NATIONWIDE  


Wasted Places, a collaborative effort by six nonprofit newsrooms that investigates federal and state programs designed to cleanup and redevelop polluted tracts known as brownfields, has developed an interactive national map of 17,000 sites that have received federal brownfields funding for assessing contamination. It is produced by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. It can be sorted to the state or even zip code level. Mississippi has brownfields with an assessed value of $174m. The data for each site includes a description, the type of assessment conducted, and the dollar amount for the assessment. In Hattiesburg, Miss., the idle property of Shemper Salvage and the Hattiesburg Asphalt plant are examples of two brownfields listed. It could be a useful tool for economic developers trying to get a better understanding of brownfields in their community.
