The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has begun a hearing process on the proposed Mill River cleanup after receiving more than 150 signatures calling for a review.

Only 25 signatures were needed to force a hearing on Exide’s proposal to remove contaminants from the river near the former car battery factory on the Post Road. Click here to read more.

The permitting process for Exide’s plan is now on hold until a remediation plan is finalized.

First Selectman Michael Tetreau and other town officials recently joined state Sen. John McKinney, Rep. Brenda Kupchick, Rep. Tony Hwang and Rep. Kim Fawcett to discuss the cleanup with state officials in Hartford. (Click here to read coverage.)

Updates will be posted as they become available.
