Jun 21st, 2014 | By | Category: Water

The EPA says it will begin cleaning up a 20-year-old Superfund site near the Connecticut River where officials envision a park with hiking trails and a kayak launch.

The 12-acre Higganum Cove property, beside a scenic waterfall, has been included on a list of Connecticut Superfund sites awaiting cleanup since 1989 because of the presence of PCBs, lead, and arsenic “at levels of concern to human health and the environment.”

The cleanup is expected to begin in July. Officials from the EPA and the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection have scheduled a meeting on the project July 8, at 6:30 p.m. at town hall on Field Park Drive.
