Abstract

Explores the nexus between sustainable development and another “revolution” in environmental law: the proliferation of state and federal policies designed to combat the “Brownfields” phenomenon (the existence of abandoned or underutilized urban sites that sit idle in part due to concerns over environmental contamination).

Keywords: Brownfields, CERCLA, voluntary cleanup programs, sustainable development
