RPC Brownfield Informational Materials:



Information on RPC Brownfield Sites

Please visit the Site Information page for information on sites enrolled in RPC's Brownfield
Redevelopment Program. Additional site information may also be found on
LDEQ’s Electronic Data
Management System (EDMS) using the property’s LDEQ Agency Interest (AI) Number indicated in the
Property Profile section. Site information is also available on
EPA’s Enviromapper website.

Note: RPC does not maintain a list of potential Brownfield sites. Instead, we encourage you to work
with a local commercial real estate agent to find a property that meets the needs of your proposed
redevelopment project and then contact RPC if the site is in need of environmental assessment.
