BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - The federal Environmental Protection Agency is awarding a total of $2 million to municipal and regional efforts to clean up and redevelop old industrial sites.

The town of Brattleboro - and regional planning commissions serving Lamoille County, central Vermont and the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee areas - each will get $400,000 to assess and clean up so-called brownfield sites.

The Northwest Regional Planning Commission and Springfield Regional Development Corporation each will get $200,000.

The state-backed Brownfield Economic Revitalization Alliance will work with the EPA on targeted projects including a former paper mill in Bellows Falls, a former machine tool plant in Springfield and a former creamery in Richmond.
