MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality has awarded grants worth more than $2 million to clean up three brownfield sites.
That type of property is vacant with known or suspected environmental contamination.
One of those grants, worth $100,000, will help the city of Muskegon Heights with environmental investigations, the removal of contaminated soil, and liability protection for purchasers of contaminated property at 414 W. Broadway. Stainless steel manufacturer Versatile Fabrication plans to invest $2 million into construction and equipment for that property.
Grants were also awarded to projects in Detroit and Kalamazoo.
