Project Type: Assessment

Activities: The Regional Brownfield Partnership has awarded the Neighborhood Housing Services of Waterbury $100,000 for environmental assessment activities at 526 North Main Street, Waterbury. Data will be used to determine the level of remediation (if any) needed on site. The proposed redevelopment of this former industrial site consists of a 100+ unit apartment building with commercial space on the first two floors.

Project Status: A mandatory site walk was held on March 23rd.  The Regional Brownfield Partnership Board selected Arcadis to preform environmental testing, which has revealed the presence of PCBs, PAHs, and asbestos. A Phase I report and Quality Assurance Project Plan have been completed, with a Phase II report expected soon.
