The county will use the funds to revitalize derelict buildings, old salvage yards, landfills, railyards, gas stations and mine-impacted properties in hopes of generating jobs and spurring economic growth.

Priority sites in Price include downtown properties containing leaking underground storage tanks, a former lumber mill and an abandoned retail site. Sites in Helper include underground storage tanks and an old landfill. Properties targeted in Wellington include gas stations and a former lumber mill. All of the sites could contain such contaminants as petroleum compounds, heavy metals, PCBs, solvents and acids.
