G20 - Reclaiming The Land

Economic recovery is an important issue for G20 leaders, and Pittsburgh leads by example. When steel mills and factories closed, the region was left with vacant, often contaminated tracts of land. Known as brownfields, many of these sites were cleaned up and transformed. OnQ's Chris Moore tours former brownfields, now deemed commercial and residential successes. 

G20 - Reclaiming The Land aired on Sep 22, 2009.
