Officials say work is set to begin this summer on a plan to clean up an old industrial site in Springfield.
Governor Peter Shumlin has delivered $575,000 in grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
That money will pay to begin the cleanup of the former J&L Plant Number One.
The work involves removing a shed and soil from behind the building as well as removing asbestos from what was once the building’s office.
Shumlin says the project is a great example of how collaboration can help bring the area around the plant back to life.
Bob Flint of the Springfield Regional Development Corporation says the work should be done by the end of the year.
