Agency, MO. Brownfield


Brownfields may be found in a variety of communities and can include
abandoned factories, industrial facilities and other sites or facilities that have
dealt with hazardous substances or contaminants.
Mo-Kan works to facilitate the clean-up of contaminated properties through a
Revolving Loan Fund Grant awarded from the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA), spurring reuse and redevelopment of those properties.
In 2017, the City of Agency applied to Mo-Kan Regional Council for a
sub-grant to remediate a vacant property in Agency. The brownfield
(formerly a convenience store and gasoline station) contains a canopy
with fueling pumps and a concrete pad. Remediation and removal plans
include developing the site as an expansion of the current city park, with

work beginning in Spring 2018.
