Subject: [CPEO-BIF] National Welding site, Newington, Connecticut
Asbestos-Contaminated Site will be Cleaned Up

By Jensen Whitmer
July 11, 2008

An abandoned industrial site in Newington, Connecticut is scheduled for environmental remediation. The site is a former National Welding factory and contains large amounts of asbestos. All asbestos-containing materials will need to be removed before the buildings on the site can be demolished.

Despite the extent of contamination, town officials plan to clean up the location for commercial development purposes, and will be soliciting bids from developers over the next few months.

Dave Hurley, an environmental engineer, has told the council that the property will cost more to clean up than it is currently worth, but "it's not astronomical. It's all doable." Hurley is with the consulting firm Fuss & O'Neill, which carried out an environmental study on the site.
