State grants could help clean up brownsites in Rochester

Rochester, NYThe City of Rochester received two grants in order to clean up more than 330 acres at the South Genesee River Vacuum Oil site and the Bulls Head area in southwest Rochester, Mayor Tom Richards announced Tuesday.

The grants, totaling more than $1.15 million, will be used for planning and preparation for environmental cleanup in these brown sites.

The grants come from the New York State Department of States Brownfield Opportunity Area program.

These grants will allow the City to continue the crucial process of addressing brownfield properties and conditions at these properties inhibit investment and prevent job creation in the very areas where they are needed most, Mayor Richards said in a statement.

The southwest quadrant of the city is set to receive 10 percent of the entire BOA grant allocation.

The grants provide funding for building surveys, and utility and infrastructure analyses.
