EJA students are actively participating in the following brownfields-related projects in the 2011-2012 school year:
- Research on state-level legislation for disclosure of harmful substances on and below the surface of private property. This work is done on behalf of a local brownfields advocacy group, to guide the group’s advocacy efforts. EJA students are working with local stakeholders, including nonprofits, governmental agencies, and state officials to focus and inform research.
- Mapping assistance for local nonprofit, including data compilation and aerial photography to create baseline maps of local brownfields areas.

In the 2010-2011 school year, EJA students conducted similar research on Oregon legislation related to disclosure of harmful substances on and below the surface of public property. This research helped inform a local brownfields nonprofit’s advocacy efforts and site prioritization strategy.
