Despite all the pollution and damages that the Westinghouse site has caused to the town of Bloomfield, the damage was able to be contained, disposed of, and the land become useable again. Because of this the town has decided to capitalize on this “free” land and build upon it a better economic solution for the town. Gone are the days of radioactive waste dumping, chemical fires, and no government oversight for pollution. Now the new site will be home to businesses and housing that will allow Bloomfield to economically rise up without the toxic baggage of the past that helped the town prosper.
