EPA Grant

Posted on 14th May 2013 at 16:08

The City of Kelso is getting more than $156,000 form the Environmental Protection Agency, as one of eight cities in the northwest that are getting money to assess, clean up and revitalize “brownfield” properties. Kelso is receiving $156,275 that will help to pay for the cleanup and reclamation of the Terry’s Salvage Yard property on North Pacific Avenue. That property was contaminated by a number of materials, dumped over decades of activity on that parcel. Recently, the city completed demolition of the old structures on that property, and awarded Community Development Block Grant funding that will eventually have new family homes built on that reclaimed property.
