Brownfields to Green Golf Courses in Michigan
Jonathan Mahler walks us through the former contaminated sites that lie under the golf course:
"...holes No. 4 and No. 5 were the slag pit for a company that made automobile brakes. Holes No. 14 and 15 were a former Superfund site once occupied by a company that used radium and mercury to manufacture components for fighter planes."
The site is surrounded by housing projects and poor neighborhoods - the development is meant to create jobs and improve the local economic climate.
