Springfield Township is applying to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a Brownfields Cleanup Grant to remediate hazardous substances at a property known as the former Tank Car Corporation of America (Tank Car), located at 1725 Walnut Avenue.

The property was acquired by Springfield Township in 2015 and has been subject to several remediation activities for the eventual redevelopment of that site into a public park. The Township is now in the process of applying for funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Brownfields Grant Program to initiate the next phase of that remediation and redevelopment process.

In order to update the community on Springfield's intent on applying for the Brownfields Cleanup Grant, the Township will be hosting a public virtual meeting on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 7:00 PM with Township staff and the environmental consultants working on this project.
