EPA awards $1-Million to clean up Alabama `brownfields'

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Several Alabama communities will share
$1 million in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants to clean
up former industrial and commercial sites that may contain
hazardous chemicals.

In a statement Monday, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson said
the Jefferson County Industrial Development Authority will receive
$200,000 for the cleanup of the Trinity Ironworks site.

Talladega and Mobile will receive $400,000 each to assess sites, known as "brownfields," because of pollutants found at the locations that were not identified by EPA.

The grants were awarded through the federal economic stimulus
program.
