City of Stamford, CT Brownfields Program

TRC has provided environmental support services for the City of Stamford’s Stamford Urban Transitway (SUT) Brownfields Program. The program included redevelopment and revitalization in conjunction with the construction of a new connector between the Stamford Intermodal Transportation Center and Interstate 95. The project included the realignment of existing street segments, development of new roadway, widening of an existing roadway and operational improvements (sidewalks, landscaping and bike pathways) along a two-mile facility corridor.

TRC completed Phase I environmental site assessments of over 100 properties in the SUT area as well as Phase II site investigations on 29 sites with Phase III site investigations, remedial action planning, and remediation oversight to address contamination that would impact Transitway construction. TRC has also assisted the City with preparing a demolition bid specification for the buildings within the SUT project area. Our program and staffing assignments for the City of Stamford have expanded and changed in response to changing transitway design considerations without impacting overall project progress. Throughout the program, TRC assisted with on-call construction services.

TRC also provided asbestos, lead, and LEED waste management consulting services to the City of Stamford at the former vacant Clairol Research and Development Facility, which is now the Rogers International Magnet School. TRC also completed a Phase II environmental investigation at the facility prior to its renovation. No significant contamination was discovered, allowing the planned renovations to continue.

Since 2009, TRC has been providing the City of Stamford with LEP and PE support services for the revitalization of the area along a vacant, underutilized stretch of the Mill River in the City. The remediation and restoration of the site was funded by the CT Department of Economic and Community Development Brownfields program. TRC oversaw the excavation of soil contaminated with chlorinated and petroleum hydrocarbons. After excavation, the site was restored and redeveloped into a portion of the Mill River Park, which includes open space, a skating rink, and river pathways. Monitoring wells were installed for post-remediation groundwater monitoring.
