A former orphanage and boarding school tainted with toxins could be transformed into a recreation area with ballparks and green space, paid for with a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Tribe received $200,000 from the EPA on May 8 to clean up the Tekakwitha Old Orphanage and Boarding School Complex. The money, called a Brownfields grant, is part of more than $70 million in EPA money that will help cleanse toxic sites in South Dakota - all while creating jobs.
