The city recently received $484,400 in brownfields remediation grants for cleanup at three polluted sites around the city, including two sites proposed for reuse as solar farms.
The largest grant was $292,800 for the redevelopment of the former Seville Dye property on First Avenue. The funds will be used to install a bioventing remedial system on the city-owned site to address petroleum-impacted soils. The city has proposed a 1.5-megawatt solar array for the site.
Another grant of $100,000 was awarded for site preparation at 92–176 Sunnyside Ave, two adjacent former industrial parcels the city has also proposed for reuse as a solar farm.
