Westside Brownfields Coalition Assessment Project

The Westside Sacramento Integrated Regional Water Management Group oversees a “brownfields” project that engages communities primarily in the Cache and Putah Creek watersheds to assess and remediate abandoned mining sites.

The goals of this project were to:

  • Increase public understanding of land use issues related to brownfields; and
  • Develop a prioritized plan for cleanup projects on mine-scarred sites consistent with regional planning objectives.

The Westside Brownfields Coalition Assessment Project has:

  1. Created an interactive database of mine sites in the two watersheds;
  2. Prioritized and assessed mine-scarred sites in our area;
  3. Evaluated sites for potential cleanup; and
  4. Developed an overall brownfields plan for the region.
