The cleanup is about to begin at a contaminated historic mill in Bellows Falls. The Environmental Protection Agency is in charge of the cleanup. The TLR Mill Complex is filled with asbestos and other hazardous materials. Portions of the building that have collapsed will be dismantled and removed. Other parts of the building will be restored.
The complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because the basement appears to contain remnants of the nation’s first transportation canal, built from 1792 to 1802.
