The City of Terre Haute Brownfields Program works in partnership with the Indiana Brownfields Program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other Indiana agencies to assist in the cleanup and resue of brownfields by identifying and mitigating environmental barriers that impede sustainable redevelopment and local economic growth.

The State of Indiana defines a brownfield site as a parcel or real estate that

  • is abandoned or inactive; or
  • may not be operated at its appropriate use; and
  • on which expansion, redevelopment, or reuse is complicated because of the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, a contaminant, petroleum, or a petroleum product that poses a risk to human health and the environment.

The City of Terre Haute Brownfields Program was created in August 2006 to systematically identify, investigate and remediate public and private brownfield sites located throughout the community for redevelopment and development reuse.
