Homeowners Want Say in Scofieldtown, CT Cleanup

August 15, 2010 - North Stamford residents who have contaminated wells asked a Bridgeport judge to force the city and state to involve them in confidential negotiations on cleaning up hazardous contaminants at the former landfill site at Scofieldtown Park.

On Friday, North Stamford Concerned Citizens for the Environment, a residents group, filed an injunction request in state Superior Court in Bridgeport to allow it to take part in talks between the city and the Department of Environmental Protection to establish an investigation and a cleanup plan for toxic contamination at the park. The land served as a residential and industrial dump site from the 1930s to 1970s.

A federal report in 2008 that found soil contaminated with PCBs and other toxins at the park prompted closure of the facility in 2009.
