Environmental Stewardship

Making Hamilton County communities safer through blight removal and hazardous material abatement.

From 2001 - 2011, brownfield cleanup served as a major pillar of The Port's work. Over the course of those ten years, our work yielded 155 acres of land cleared of contamination and ready for redevelopment. Our site readiness strategy builds on this legacy of environmental stewardship, as we take ownership of and prepare sites for new investment and development. The Port also administers U.S. EPA Brownfield Assessment Grant Funds regionally supporting Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments.

The Port's Remediation Loan Fund

The Port was awarded an $800,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to capitalize a new site Remediation Loan Program (RLP). The goal of the RLP is to ensure that funding is available to properly clean up contaminated sites, returning land back to communities and delivering a safer and healthier environment for Hamilton County residents.
