Senator McCrory Applauds $2.2 Million in State Aid to Remediate Former Stanadyne Site in Windsor

Senator Doug McCrory welcomed the approval of $2.2 million in state grants Friday to provide funding to offset costs associated with remediating contaminated land on a former industrial site in Windsor, paving the way for future development and revitalization of the area.

The grants will be used to clean up and remediate more than 32 acres of land on Deerfield Road, where Stanadyne manufacturing facilities were previously located. These projects will enable the property to be used for new business facilities including manufacturing spaces, warehouses, and office space.

“This funding will help to transform contaminated land on the old Stanadyne site into a hub of economic activity,” Senator McCrory, D-Hartford, said. “Remediation is the first step toward developing a business park that will help to foster growth in our community. I’m grateful to Governor Lamont for approving this funding, which will set the stage for job growth and economic development.”

The grants for Windsor were among dozens announced by the governor Friday. All told, the state aid totaled $26.3 million, which will help to fund remediation projects at 22 properties in 17 municipalities across Connecticut.

“Nobody wants to have old, polluted, and blighted properties in their neighborhood that sit vacant for decades, especially when that land could be used to grow new businesses and create housing for people who need it,” Governor Lamont said. “This state program enables us to partner with municipalities and developers to bring these lifeless properties back from the dead.”
