Brooklyn Public Library’s Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center acts as a document repository for local remediation reports. These reports are produced by environmental engineers and developers that undertake evaluation and construction projects in areas that have been identified by government environmental agencies as a Superfund or brownfield site. These documents are made available to the public as a way for residents and businesses to access information about these projects and participate in the remediation process.

Look below to find digital versions for many of the documents in our repository available to download. We also have physical versions for some documents accessible at our Greenpoint Library (at Leonard during construction) and at Central Library. To give you the most thorough assistance, we ask that you give us 48 hours advance notice if you would like to access the physical versions of the reports.

For access to documents stored at the Central Library, email your request to the Brooklyn Collection at or call 718.230.2762.

For access to documents that are part of the Greenpoint collection, email your request to or call the Leonard Library at 718.486.6006.
