Region 6 Targeted Brownfields Assessment Brochure

EPA Region 6's Brownfields program offers a free brownfields evaluation called Targeted Brownfields Assessment (TBA). The Region 6 TBA is available to Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas. These assessments will ensure that sufficient environmental information is obtained about the property to encourage the process of reuse and redevelopment. The TBA includes:

  • sampling and analyses,
  • cleanup planning based on proposed reuse,
  • cleanup cost estimates, and
  • other valuable technical reports.

The Region 6 Targeted Brownfields Assessment Brochure explains:

  • The four steps to reuse
  • Who is eligible
  • If your community needs an Inventory Assessment or Area-wide Planning
  • How long the process takes
  • How much a TBA will cost
  • How to sign up for a TBA
