Southern Indiana Development Commission
SIDC continues to work and expand efforts in the area of brownfields. The agency maintains an inventory of brownfields and provides assistance with remediation efforts for the brownfield sites. SIDC has taken an ongoing role in educating local elected officials, local economic development organizations, businesses, and industries regarding brownfield issues and methods of dealing with the problems.
SIDC has joined a coalition of EDA regional planning districts, Indiana Department of Environmental Management and Indiana Finance Authority to apply for Federal Environmental Protection Agency to apply for funding from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a program for Phase I and Phase II assessments. The funding, if awarded, will allow SIDC to provide a funding source for local governments to determine the level of contamination at brownfield sites.
SIDC has also been assisting in the management of Brownfield assessment and remediation site specific projects throughout the area. Specifically SIDC has provided assistance to hazardous substance projects in Greene County and Knox County and to addressing petroleum remediation projects throughout the entire area.
