A brownfield site is “real property, the expansion, redevelopment or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant or contaminant.” Brownfield sites are typically characterized
     
as having unknown environmental liabilities which often prevent communities, developers and investors from restoring these properties to productive uses and revitalizing impacted neighborhoods.
