NC Brownfields Program Print E-mail

The North Carolina Brownfields Programwhich is administered by the Division of Waste Management, is the state’s effort to break this barrier to the redevelopment of these sites. The Brownfields Property Reuse Act of 1997 [NCGS 130A310.30 et seq.] sets forth the authority for the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to work with prospective developers to put these brownfields sites back into reuse. The prospective developer, as defined under the statute, is any person who desires to buy or sell a brownfields property for the purpose of redeveloping it and who did not cause or contribute to the contamination at the property. The State Brownfields program also works closely with local Brownfields Programs.
