North Temple EPA Community-Wide Assessment

Salt Lake City and the RDA submitted a grant request in the winter of 2011 to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), requesting funding for a Brownfields Community-Wide Assessment of the North Temple Project Area. In spring of 2012, the EPA awarded Salt Lake City a $301,865 grant to perform hazardous material and petroleum testing. RDA staff will administer the grant, which involves working with an environmental consultant to identify environmentally-challenged properties. The environmental assessments will aid in characterizing properties in the area and determine whether further investigation or remedial action is warranted.

In April 2013, the RDA informed the Poplar Grove Community Council about the grant. Letters were distributed to property owners in a two-block target area with information about the grant and free environmental testing opportunities. The RDA will continue its outreach efforts to affected property owners through the spring prior to performing ground testing in the summer.

During the RDA's initial survey process of the North Temple Project Area, historical environmental property data was gathered in order to characterize environmental health. Below is a GIS map that contains data from the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact: Jill Wilkerson-Smith, Project Manager.
