EPA to Award More Funding for New Bedford Brownfield Site
Another round of funding for brownfield clean-up initiatives is being announced in New Bedford.
Mayor Jon Mitchell, Congressman William Keating, and EPA Administrator Curt Spalding will announce a $400,000 grant being awarded to the City by the EPA, to put towards clean-up efforts at the former Payne Cutlery and Elco Dress site in the near-North End.
The City was awarded $200,000 for assessment at the site earlier this year.
The announcement will be made during a 9am press conference at the empty lot Tuesday morning.
