Welcome to the Newhall Neighborhood Remediation Website...

This website tells the history of the Newhall neighborhood in Hamden, Connecticut, where pollution has been found and what is being done about it. It will explain how the area has been tested, how a remedy was developed and selected, who to contact for more information and much more.

Some 240 mostly residential properties were cleaned up in the years 2010-2012. In 2013 planning is underway for remedies to two town parks – Rochford Field and Mill Rock Park – with construction to begin in 2014.

In 2011, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) merged functions with another state agency and was renamed the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). Materials developed prior to reorganization will refer to " DEP" rather than "DEEP".
