What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website:

Westchester County - The New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery (NYS GOSR), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed City of Yonkers Drainage and Flood Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves "berm improvements," "stream restorations," and "dam removals" within five (5) individual project areas. Berm improvements activities at the Odell Avenue and Clunie Avenue project areas would restore the berms to an elevation of 1 foot of freeboard above the water surface elevation (WSEL) of the 100 year storm event. Stream restorations at the Grassy Sprain Brook Project site consist of excavating and regrading the stream bank to the 2 year storm elevation to increase the bank storage capacity during larger storm events; stream restoration projects do not excavate below the ordinary high-water mark (OHWM). Lastly, dam removal activities would remove the Saw Mill River Dam and two check dams beneath culverts where the Metro North Rail Road crosses the Sprain Brook. The project is located at multiple locations along the Saw Mill and Sprain Brook River in Westchester, New York.
