One of the sustainable jersey goals is a Brownfields Inventory. This is the one I created for Voorhees, NJ.
The spreadsheets with sites is:
The map of them is:
The ranking system is 1 -5. Where 1 is “Action Already in Progress”, 2 is “High Priority”, and 5 is “Low Priority”. On the map if they have No Value that mean they are Closed sites.
What to do next time?
We should plan to do this every 4-6 years. At the current time I plan, as part of Sustainable Voorhees, to update this whenever DEP pushs new data out to their site as data dumps. If they don’t update the data for 4+ years we will have to come up with a new plan.
If DEP Updates this website (http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/kcsnj/) I’ve created a script that will parse it and it should be trivial to compare (https://code.launchpad.net/~bryanquigley/+git/junk/+ref/master).
Otherwise we need to manually go through this site again – http://datamine2.state.nj.us/dep/DEP_OPRA/. See Sustainable Voorhees website for more details.
