Brownfields Success Stories

Delaware’s Brownfield Program is one of the State’s programs enacted to tackle the problems associated with restoration andre-development of contaminated properties. Managed by the DNREC Division of Air & Waste Management’s Site Investigation & Restoration Branch (SIRB), the Brownfield Program gives high priority to applicants in an effort to expedite the re-use and development of abandoned, vacant or under-utilized Brownfield sites that possess varying degrees of contamination.

The Brownfield Program has successfully remediated 22 sites throughout Delaware as of 1997, placing 236 acres back into active use. While all of these sites are success stories, several stand out as examples of the transformation that can occur when working through the Brownfield Program. These sites have seen new vitality and utility from once forgotten sites, adding new jobs and investing millions of dollars in capital growth.
