Brownfields Brownfields Development Area Designation


Brownfield Development Area (BDA) Designation

Under the Brownfields Development Area (BDA) approach, NJDEP works with selected communities affected by multiple brownfields to design and implement remediation and reuse plans for these properties simultaneously. The BDA approach enables remediation and reuse to occur in a coordinated fashion. In the process, we invite the various stakeholders, including owners of contaminated properties, potentially responsible parties, developers, community groups, technical experts for the local government and residents, and residents themselves, to participate in this cleanup and revitalization approach.

In the selected BDAs, NJDEP will work closely with other involved agencies and offices, including the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA), New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, and New Jersey Business Action Center, to remediate and revitalize communities and neighborhoods, not just individual properties.
