The Valley Council of Governments (formerly the Naugatuck Valley Regional Planning Agency) has performed or has underway 30 Brownfields assessments. These include: Bunker Hill Park (Schofield Park), Waterbury which has been redeveloped into a park and playground; Grove Street, Ansonia where clean-up is underway, and will soon be ready for sale by the City; Pines Bridge Industrial Park-Beacon Falls--redeveloped into a new factory which will create addtional jobs and taxes for the City; the former DOT site, Derby, a 27.6 acre site, which has been fully assessed and tranferred to the City.
In Derby, the Pilot has also performed assessments on O’Sullivans Island and has worked with EPA to determine the feasibility of phytoremediation as a cleanup option to prepare the site for redevelopment. Eventually, the riverbanks surrounding O’Sullivan’s Island will be restored and residents will enjoy a new park, a marina, and pedestrian and bicycle paths.
