Several Alabama communities will share $1 million in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants to clean up former industrial and commercial sites that may contain hazardous chemicals.
In a statement Monday, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson said the Jefferson County Industrial Development Authority will receive $200,000 for the cleanup of the Trinity Ironworks site. Talladega and Mobile will receive $400,000 each to assess sites, known as "brownfields," because of pollutants found at the locations that were not identified by EPA.
The grants were awarded through the federal economic stimulus program.
