U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Assessment


The Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments (OCWCOG) has formed a coalition with the cities of Newport and Toledo, Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians, and Lincoln County (Coalition) to address brownfields in our communities using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfield Community-Wide Assessment (CWA) grant funding.  The Target Area for our U.S. EPA-funded brownfield assessment and cleanup/redevelopment planning project consists of developed areas within the Yaquina River watershed: the cities of Newport, Toledo, and the unincorporated areas of Lincoln County located along the Yaquina River between these two cities.

A Coalition of partners will represent the interests of their jurisdictions, will serve on the project Brownfield Advisory Committee, and assist with community outreach and public involvement throughout the grant term. Coalition partner leads are listed below.
