EPA 2023 Brownfields Conference

Our Tonawanda-area Environmental Justice Organizer Bridge Rauch and Geologist consultant Tom Morahan attended the 2023 EPA Brownfields Conference in Detroit earlier this month. The two attended sessions on a wide range of topics, from anti-gentrification strategies for brownfield redevelopments to technical topics like vapor intrusion.

Bridge and Tom in DetroitEnvironmental Justice Caucus SessionClean Air’s work encompasses the full life of the sites we advocate about – for example, although we successfully fought for an equitable closure of Tonawanda Coke five years ago, we anticipate that our related campaign work will continue for decades to come as the longer term Brownfield and Superfund cleanup processes are ongoing and when the site is eventually reused.


If you are interested in joining our work in the Tonawandas, please fill out the form below and we will be in contact!

  • River Road Watchdogs – keeping tabs on existing industry in the River Road corridor and fighting for strong Brownfield and Superfund clean up standards at former sites
  • Tonawanda Tomorrow Team – fighting for just and equitable community development in the Tonawandas to prevent future environmental injustices

The next conference will be in 2025.
