The Borough of Naugatuck has received a $100,000 grant through the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments (NVCOG) Brownfields Revolving Fund (RLF). The NVCOG RLF is financed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Remediation is proposed at 6 Rubber Avenue parcels A&B in Naugatuck. The Borough intends to remediate the first floor of the former General Datacomm building for use as an open convention space for pop-up events in the Borough.


The Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP) engaged for the project, Tim Carr of Nobis Engineering, has developed a draft Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) and draft Community Relations Plan (CRP). The draft documents are available for public review and written comment online below:



Parcels A & B have entered the Connecticut Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP) pursuant to CGS 22a-133x. The VRP requires the LEP to characterize the properties to prevailing standards and guidelines and to remediate the properties to the Remediation Standard Regulations (RSCA 22a- 133k-1 to -3).
