A large brownfield site in Luzerne County, the former site of Poseidon Pools’ factory, will be cleaned up and put on the market next year.  The 40-acre sight, in Wright Township, Luzerne County, is owned by the Greater Wilkes-Barre Development Corporation.  Poseidon pools filed for bankruptcy in 1998!

Soil remediation has already taken place using money from the state’s Industrial Sites Recovery Program.  A $1 million dollar grant has been procured from the Infrastructure Development Program to pay for demolition and clean up.

The property will be sold in one piece, not divided into parcels.
