Chelmsford officials are seeking potential buyers for the contaminated land on Katrina Road, property that was formerly owned by Silicon Transistor until it was taken by the down due to nonpayment of taxes.

According to a report in the Lowell Sun, the three-acre site has little hopes of generating revenue because it will cost a great deal to clean up. Between state and federal funds, a total greater than $1 million has already been put to cleaning up the contamination, according to the newspaper.

The Sun reported that the proposals being sought are for those interested in buying the land and also for anyone interested in a five-year lease for solar panels.

"It's a real conundrum at this point," said Town Manager Paul Cohen, according to the Lowell Sun report.
