New Bedford looks for grants to aid cleanup

Posted 1/13/14

NEW BEDFORD – The city is hoping to remove an underground oil storage tank near the Cliftex Mills with help from federal grants, according to www.southcoasttoday.com.

The city Department of Environmental Stewardship announced this month that it will be applying for two EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grants.

According to the website, one grant will be used to either remove or secure a 75,000-gallon underground fuel tank near the Cliftex Mills. The other will be used to clean up any petroleum-impacted soil. The impacted area consists of two lots, each less than a quarter of an acre, located behind the recently developed Cliftex Lofts.

Michele Paul of the city Department of Environmental Stewardship told the website that New Bedford took over ownership of the land where the fuel tank and contaminated soil is located after the mills went out of business. •
