Partners Environmental helps Northeast Ohio
Regional Sewer District Obtain $400,000 in Cleanup Grants
Cleveland, Ohio – Partners Environmental Consulting of Solon, Ohio recently assisted the Northeast Ohio Sewer District in securing two U.S.E.P.A. Brownfield Cleanup Grants to fund its Woodland Green Infrastructure Project.
Faced with the costly task of modernizing its sewer system to minimize the potential for combined sewer overflows, the District looked to implement Green Infrastructure features to support a triple bottom line solution. As part of its Woodland Central Green Infrastructure Project, the organization was acquiring properties within the city that it would convert to overflow basins. A 10-acre brownfield in urban Cleveland was pinpointed as the ideal location.
Working with The District, Partners Environmental provided a thorough assessment of the property and determined that the land was impacted with solid waste and hazardous substances, in some cases measuring more than 40 feet deep. The firm then developed a comprehensive cleanup plan that included the integration of Green Infrastructure features into the project.
To defray the costs of the cleanup project and to ease the burden on taxpayers, the District and Partners Environmental worked closely to prepare a detailed proposal that would catch the U.S.E.P.A.’s attention. “To stand out among the thousands of U.S.E.P.A proposals, it’s imperative that you make your case with sound data and a well-defined remediation plan. Working with the Sewer District, we were able to do exactly that,” said Dan Brown, President of Partners Environmental.
Armed with accurate data and a comprehensive remediation plan, Partners Environmental helped the District make a highly compelling case for the Woodland Green Infrastructure Project. In May of 2015, The District secured two Brownfield Cleanup Grants, totaling $400,000.
“These grants enable the Sewer District to implement green infrastructure that turns what was once an eyesore and a potential health risk into an amenity for the community and an asset for Lake Erie,” notes Julius Ciaccia, CEO of the Northeast Ohio Sewer District.
To date, Partners Environmental Consulting has helped its clientele secure more than $30,000,000 in grants.
