Millions slated for cleaning Connecticut's contaminated sites
The federal government said this week that it will invest nearly $7 million to clean up and redevelop contaminated properties across the state.

New London, New Haven, Stratford, Vernon, Waterbury and West Haven will also get money to help clean up everything from a school to an old button factory. Read More
