The Indiana Brownfields Program site list is updated monthly. The list is not an inventory of all brownfield sites in Indiana, but rather those sites at which the Indiana Brownfields Program has considered or provided financial, legal or technical assistance. In addition, this list serves as the Program's public record of any institutional controls (e.g., environmental restrictive covenants) required at Program sites. Please note that some sites appear more than once on the list if more than one form of assistance has been received.
A list of sites with Institutional Controls (ICs), called the IDEM Institutional Controls (IC) Registry [PDF], is now available for viewing on IDEM’s Risk Integrated System of Closure (RISC) website. When fully populated, this registry will provide a list of all sites where RISC guidelines allowed for a risk-based closure with some type of land use restrictions or engineering controls after remediation.
The IC Registry will assist in IC tracking efforts and provide public information on cleanup sites in Indiana communities. Information included will help visitors locate and visualize IC sites in the state. The IC Registry includes information such as the site address, county, city, IDEM cleanup program overseeing the project, and the types of land use restrictions applicable for the site. The registry also has interactive features including a link to view the actual IC document using IDEM’s Virtual File Cabinet, and, where available, Internet mapping technology for an aerial view of the site.
The Virtual File Cabinet (VFC) is the online system used to view Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) site files. It also includes the Indiana Brownfields Program site files. Here are some helpful tips for accessing brownfield site information from the VFC:
The Indiana Brownfields Program is collecting important information related to the financial, legal, and technical assistance it has provided since 1997. If you have received assistance from the Program, please complete our survey and submit it to the Program. Your feedback will be instrumental as we evaluate our services so that we can continue to provide the most beneficial assistance to Indiana communities and acknowledge your successes. The Program's award of future financial assistance may depend on having your completed surveys.
Submit completed surveys via e-mail or fax to Michele Oertel of the Indiana Brownfields Program 317-234-0235.
The Town of Ligonier is in the process of recycling materials from demolition of buildings on the four-acre former Essex Wire brownfield site, which is planned for redevelopment as a river park and possibly the future home of a fire station.
