NORWALK -- A group of 40 city residents rallied Monday against the proposed rezoning of a contaminated industrial site on Norden Place.

If approved by city boards, the rezoning would allow developer Spinnaker Real Estate Partners to build a 240-unit apartment on land where federal officials have found toxic chemicals in groundwater and soil at levels deemed unsafe by state health standards. The property, formerly owned by Norden Systems Inc., was once used for building radar systems and cleaning equipment, neighbors said.


According to a 1999 report from the Environmental Protection Agency, five chemicals were known or "reasonably suspected" to contaminate groundwater and soil at the site, including the industrial solvent TCE.
