EPA awards San Diego grants for hazardous waste site assessment

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday awarded $400,000 in grants to the city of San Diego to assess hazardous waste sites.

A total of about $1.5 million in grants were awarded by the EPA in Brea, Los Angeles County, Rialto and San Diego through the agency’s Brownfields Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund and Cleanup Grants program.
