CT Development Site Investigated for "Eco-Terror"

April 2, 2009- Soil test results on the possible contamination at the site of a proposed wood-burning power plant off Mill Brook Road in Plainfield should be completed today or Friday, a Department of Environmental Protection spokesman said.

The DEP, FBI and police began investigating the site Tuesday, spurred by a letter claiming to be sent by Earth First, an environmental advocacy group, saying it had contaminated the property. The letter was sent to PRE Vice President Daniel J. Donovan and copied to The Norwich Bulletin.

The letter stated that more than 1, 200 pounds of contaminants had been dumped at the Mill Brook Road site, at Donovan’s home and at the home of project proponent J. Scott Guilmartin.
