FOCUS : Economic Development and Business Relocation Seeing gold in Fairfield County brownfields
By ALEXANDER SOULE Fairfield County Business News (CT) August 21, 2006
To the naked eye, the ruins of the Gilbert & Bennett wire mill are much as Steve Soler first observed them in 2001. Broken window panes, likely the work of well-aimed rocks from teens, stretch the length of the brick mills. The factory pond, listed as a Superfund site in 1999, still glows in the setting sun.
But Soler’s senses pick up what many others do not. The lead and zinc sludge has been carted away, 3,000 cubic yards of it, replaced with lime kiln dust and a protective earthen cap. He can already visualize the scenic waterfall that will cascade into the 12-acre pond, rehabilitated to reflect the surrounding green hillsides. Soler can hear the train chugging into the adjacent station, dropping off residents from jobs down the line who crowd shops and cafes on a summer eve.
