Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) officials announced today two Brownfields Grant awards totaling $14,373 to Yucca Fire District to facilitate redevelopment of the main fire station located at 12349 South Frontage Road in Yucca.

Grant funds will be used to perform a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and asbestos and lead-based paint survey. The ESA and survey will address both the underlying land and fire station building by identifying potential or existing environmental contamination and the presence, type and amount of building materials that contain asbestos and lead-based paint, which require cleanup or abatement to protect public health and the environment.

ADEQ Brownfields Assistance Program Redeveloping brownfields has the potential to reduce environmental hazards, mitigate public health threats, create new business opportunities, increase tax revenue and restore habitats and blighted areas to productive use. Program funds are limited and available to eligible applicants in the order that they apply and qualify.
