The Wilton Tannery, located on Route 2, opened in 1959 and treated hides with a variety of chemicals for 38 years, before shutting down and being used for storage. Town officials have been actively working with state and federal agencies to clean up the property ever since selectmen voted to take possession of the facility in 2010, after foreclosure notices were sent to the owner with more than $75,000 owed in back taxes.
A pair of Phase II Brownfield assessments, conducted by the Campbell Environmental Group and the state Department of Environmental Protection, located areas of concern on the property. These included elevated levels of chromium, particularly near a dump site of hides, scrap metal and other material, as well as a buried oil tank, still containing an amount of No. 6 fuel.
