The Grand Traverse Band (GTB) was awarded the Section 128(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) grant beginning in Fiscal Year 2012 to develop and maintain an environmental response program.  The GTB Environmental Response Program involves identifying potential brownfields sites on tribal land; establishing and maintaining a public record of brownfields sites; establishing oversight and enforcement authorities; providing opportunities for public participation; and developing mechanisms for approval of a cleanup plan.

 

What is a brownfields site?

brownfields site = a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.

*The Grand Traverse Band was awarded the Section 128(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) grant beginning in Fiscal Year 2012 to set up an environmental response program.  One of the main elements of the response program is to conduct a timely survey and inventory of brownfields sites located on tribal lands.  A public record system must also be established and maintained.  The Grand Traverse Band hard copy public record is located at the Natural Resources Building.  If you are interested in viewing the public record, please contact Kris Ingrao, the Environmental Director.
