EPA Brownfield Site Assessment Grant Preparation and Management for the Sweetwater Arts and Entertainment District in Florence, Alabama

PM Environmental, Inc. was retained by the City of Florence to provide consulting and grant preparation assistance for a Hazardous Substance and Petroleum Grant Request with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  PM Environmental conducted historical research on the area, provided guidance to City Officials on community activities to enhance the quality of the grant, and assisted with presentations for public officials and private stakeholders concerning the grant.

The Sweetwater Arts and Entertainment District (SAED) is developed in an area of former industrial sites, including a 130 year old foundry, a metal plating company, and a textile mill.  PM assisted the client with Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), remediation plans, and community involvement.  PM also acted as a consultant concerning the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP).

The Phase I and Phase II ESAs were conducted on the foundry, former railroad depot, and along a creek where several industrial businesses used to operate.
