What is a brownfield?

A brownfield is an unused or underdeveloped land parcel that has been affected by environmental contamination and needs to be cleaned up before it can be developed. Brownfields can be contaminated with oil, PCBs, lead, and bacteria, among other substances. EPA estimates that approximately one-third of the land in the United States is potentially contaminated with hazardous substances, making brownfields a significant issue.

With so much land slated for development, brownfields have become a hot topic in recent years.
