Nearly 20 years after it was vacated, environmental cleanup has begun at the former Meriden-Wallingford Hospital to allow it to be made over into a senior living complex.

Workers are remediating the 5.6-acre site, which was found to be contaminated with PCBs, metal, inorganic contaminants and petroleum, according to an environmental study. The cleanup will also include removing two underground storage tanks and hazardous materials from the former boiler room, as well as asbestos.

“The city has committed to completing remediation and hazardous materials abatement to advance the adaptive reuse of the building and parking garage in cooperation with a private developer,” said city Economic Development Director Juliet Burdelski. 

The abatement project is scheduled for completion within 170 working days, during which time access to the site is prohibited. Soil cleanup using the EPA funds will begin in early 2019.
