Reclaiming a Bristol 'brownfield' for development 
Saturday, October 21, 2000

Condominiums and commerce are planned for the long-abandoned 40-acre tract
along the Delaware. 

By Jacob Quinn Sanders 

A dreary, contaminated 40-acre industrial property along the Delaware River
in Bristol Borough has been reclaimed by local, state and federal officials
eager for 35 years to change the community's image.

After spending more than $1 million on cleanup alone, the agencies involved
have visions of neatly trimmed lawns, 14 age-restricted condominium units,
and commerce at Riverfront Property North on Radcliffe Street - site of a
World War I-era shipyard and manufacturing plants for detergent and
processed zinc, abandoned since 1986.

The Borough Council, the state Department of Environmental Protection, and
the federal Environmental Protection Agency claim victory in reclaiming the
property after excavating 11,000 cubic yards of chemically contaminated soils.
