Dan Esty, the commissioner for the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection will be in Waterbury late Wednesday afternoon to tour the site of Saturday's massive fire at the former Nova Dye & Print factory at 313 Mill Street. The factory sits on the edge of the Mad River, which flows directly into the Naugatuck River. Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary, who will tour the site with Esty and Waterbury Fire Chief Dave Martin, said there is concern that contaminants from the factory will make there way into the watershed, thus the visit from the state's champion of environmental protection.

This effort should include acquisition of certain proposed condominium and apartment development properties such as Western Woods on Park Road (133.68 acres, open space value $1,750,000), Stonebridge Commons on Highland Avenue (38 acres, estimated open space value $500,000) and Essex Ridge on Suffolk Street (9 acres, estimated open space value $118,000). --- Waterbury Neighborhood Council
