What is the difference between a Brownfield and Superfund?



  1. 0 Votes

    Superfund sites are specifically designated by the EPA and involve the location of toxic waste disposal, a brownfield site is merely an already developed site that is underused or not used to full potential, it may have environmental contamination, but not nearly to the degree that a superfund site does.

    According to the EPA, “Superfund is the government’s program to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites” Brownfields, on the other hand, are pieces of property where development is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Brownfield sites can be covered by Superfund programs, but can also be redeveloped separately from the government in private initiatives. The LEED green building rating system encourages such actions by offering points for Brownfield redevelopment.
