Project Type: Cleanup Planning

Activities: The Revolving Loan Fund Committee of NVCOG has awarded the Waterbury Development Corporation a $86,000 sub-grant to assist with State remedial closeout requirements at 359 Mill Street. The Site, also known as the Brass City Harvest, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that uses urban agriculture to build self-reliance skills, empower residents to modify their dietary behaviors, and increase fresh food access points in the community. This food hub now infuses more than 200,000 pounds of fresh, locally grown food into the community each year.

Environmental requirements include groundwater sampling and monitoring as well as closeout reports.

Project Status: Steps towards providing the additional assessment work on site have commenced with the initiation of the Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP). Environmental work is anticipated the start mid-Spring 2022.
