City of Lynwood receives $400,000 in U.S. EPA Brownfields grants Funding will investigate contamination, encourage development

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will today award $400,000 to Lynwood, Calif., Mayor Maria Teresa Santillan, to be used to analyze Long Beach Boulevard, downtown Lynwood’s major north-south thoroughfare, for petroleum and hazardous substances contamination, helping revitalize the city's downtown.

“The EPA is very pleased to provide funding for Lynwood," said Debbie Schechter, manager of EPA’s Pacific Southwest region’s Brownfields program. "Work conducted under our Brownfields grants will help transform underutilized properties into community assets."

The EPA’s Brownfields program encourages redevelopment of America's estimated 450,000 abandoned and contaminated waste sites. Since the beginning of the Brownfields program, EPA has awarded 1255 assessment grants totaling over $298.6 million, 230 revolving loan fund grants totaling over $217.7 million, and 426 cleanup grants totaling $78.7 million.
