LEED v4 ND Brownfield Remediation

Available Instantly Expert Content


Brownfield sites are contaminated with hazardous materials that can be harmful to humans and the environment. Remediation of brownfield sites is one method of mitigating this threat.

Environmental engineers use a variety of techniques to remediate brownfield sites, ranging from soil blending to bioremediation. Furthermore, because each project has a distinct type and level of pollution, the remediation techniques required to clean different sites can vary greatly.

If the project is planned to be built on a brownfield site, the LEED rating system requires its remediation prior to construction. If this is not feasible, LEED project can be located in a high-priority redevelopment area to earn credit points under this credit category.
