Landfill Remediation Project &
the Hillside Environmental Education Park
The University of Connecticut recently undertook a ten year clean-up and mitigation process on the site of the former UConn landfill. The clean-up followed a consent order issued by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection in 1998 and culminated in the opening of the Hillside Environmental Education Park. A diverse cross-section of students, faculty, and staff at the University assisted with the project and will continue to be involved in research and monitoring efforts related to environmental remediation, wildlife, wetlands ecosystems, and invasive species management.
