Douglas to sign brownfields liability bill on Saturday

Print More

Governor Jim Douglas will be in Springfield Saturday to sign a bill that could help towns get developers interested in old industrial properties. The bill limits liability for developers who are interested in putting new business at unused industrial sites, such as former machine tool plants in towns like Springfield and Windsor. Some developers avoid those sites, known as “brownfields,” because they don’t want to risk being liable for cleaning up contamination like oil, lubricant and industrial waste.
