Work continues toward brownfield site development in Burlington
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Work is continuing toward developing a brownfield site in Burlington.
The site, located on Pine Street, is getting remediated for development thanks to $6 million of brownfield money from the state. It’s slated to be developed as a Nordic Bathhouse and bowling alley.
First, however, investigations are ongoing to look at how contaminated the soil is and how to move forward with remediation and development responsibly.
“They’re looking at potential contaminants of the soil, they’re looking at the water table and potential contaminants in groundwater and the consultants will be putting together the corrective action plan to remediate the site in 2023 next year,” said Graham Bradley, an environmental analyst for the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.
Once they get the plan into place to protect the lake and environment around the site, they will begin remediation and construction, aiming for late 2023.
