ANSONIA - Mayor David S. Cassetti, members of his administration, Tim Sullivan, Director of the CT Department of Economic and Community Development Office of Brownfields Remediation, Mark Lewis from the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and state Rep. Linda M. Gentile, D-Ansonia met to discuss the Ansonia Copper and Brass site.
"This site occupies almost 40 acres in our downtown and we need to begin to address the issues associated with it," Cassetti said.
"I am asking the state's assistance for Brownfields' assessment funds."

"We can no longer ignore all the problems that result from unused or underutilized manufacturing buildings especially when we are so small that developable land is a rare commodity," Cassetti said.

The City of Ansonia plans to apply for assessment money to
characterize the 40-acre site and determine the extent and cost of the remediation.

This is a press release from Mayor David S. Cassetti's office.
