Kent to Accept $2.4 Million in State Brownfield Grants
Money will pay to clean up former AMETEK, RB&W manufacturing sites
City leaders will formally accept more than $2.4 million from the state of Ohio this week as part of efforts to remediate two of Kent's oldest brownfields.
Kent City Council will vote Wednesday on two grants from the Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund.
One grant will remediate contaminated soil and repair an underground chemical containment system at the former RB&W site on Mogadore Road. The second grant will address soil issues at the former AMETEK complex on Lake Street.
The RB&W grant totals more than $1.3 million, and the AMETEK grant amounts to more than $1 million.
