Port Authority Recieves Grant to Clean Up Industrial Sites

The Western Reserve Port Authority received a $600,000 federal grant on Thursday to plan cleanup activities for abandoned industrial sites in Trumbull County.

The grant will be used for the port authority to conduct a brownfield inventory of approximately 35 sites, perform approximately 30 environmental assessments, plan cleanup for approximately seven sites and organize community engagement activities, according to a news release.

The sites include the former Delphi complex in Warren. Other target areas will include the Mahoning River corridor and the Golden Triangle on Bronze, Dietz and Griswold streets.

The grant will allow the group that created the Trumbull Brownfield Coalition to leverage $3.1 million in additional funds from “a variety of sources.”
