Brownfield Bus TourREGISTER HERE

The 2023 Brownfield Tour will focus on a single multi-faceted site steeped in Chattanooga history—the former Standard Coosa Thatcher Mill. The Standard Coosa Thatcher Mill, which is a former hosiery mill and a key piece of Chattanooga’s industrial past, is currently undergoing mixed use redevelopment. The tour will focus on the technical and legal challenges that come with multiple uses, developers, Voluntary Agreements, Land Use Restrictions, contaminants, exposure pathways, EPA grants, and regulatory governing authorities. Participants may receive up to 2.0 hours of CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credit for this tour. Participants can register for the tour here.


Once known as the most polluted city in America, Chattanooga is in the “clear”. Come explore elements of the City of Chattanooga’s Clear Initiative. Clear Chattanooga is the City’s community-wide wastewater improvement plan. Join us as we visit the Moccasin Bend Environmental Campus (MBEC).  We’ll stop at the new Hamm Road wet weather equalization station and then tour part of MBEC to learn about major energy efficiency upgrades and capacity improvements in the works. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable closed-toed shoes. We’ll make two stops during this tour and will arrive back at the convention center at 11. Participants can register for the tour here.
