  • Petroleum Brownfields Action Plan (PDF) - EPA has begun to collaborate across all levels of government and with private industry to develop a new Petroleum Brownfields Action Plan—one that improves stakeholder communications; expands technical assistance to states, tribes, and local governments; explores potential policy changes; and builds upon existing successes by expanding partnerships. Such actions can serve to revitalize petroleum brownfields through new, innovative approaches and to promote sustainability through efficient resource use, waste reduction, and a longer-term perspective on site and community benefits.
