Preston needs additional $4 million for cleanup of former Norwich Hospital site

The discoveries have added an estimated $4 million in cleanup costs associated with the 393-acre property, prompting town officials to seek release of a $2 million low-interest contingency loan approved by the state in addition to a $10 million grant awarded to cover final cleanup costs. The low-interest loan has payment forgiveness provisions based on the number of jobs created by the future development. The town also is seeking an additional $2 million state grant to cover the added costs of removing the coal ash and asbestos in the ground.
