ATSDR Brownfield/Land Reuse Initiative


The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) has developed resources to aid communities interested in redeveloping abandoned or underused industrial or commercial properties that may be contaminated. It includes background information, information on accessing dose calculators and information on redeveloping a healthy community.

For those who are exploring a health in all policies approach, these resources can be beneficial when working with sectors such as planning departments.
