Tollefson develops interactive contaminant and public space map

October 5, 2021

Jonathan Tollefson (CEC) has developed an interactive map, which is available to the public here.

This map presents a range of spatial data on the history of Providence-area industrial contamination and public space. It brings together five new data sets, each constructed from a variety of contemporary and historic records, alongside RI DEM site investigation reports (SIR) and historic "redlining" maps produced by the federal Home Owners' Loan Corporation in the 1930s.
