Soil testing of the Waterfront Park soils temporarily being stored at the Leddy parking lot (from the Burlington Bike Path Rehabilitation project) will be taking place next week. Burlington Parks, Recreation & Waterfront (BPRW) has engaged The Johnson Company, Inc. to execute the testing. A memo detailing next steps may be found here: 20150910 Memo – Leddy Stockpile Update FINAL
Additionally, BPRW and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) invite the public to a discussion on these temporarily stockpiled soils.
- Date: Tuesday, September 22, 2015
- Time: 6:00 pm
- Location: Leddy Park in the Leddy Arena Community Room
- Topic: Stockpiled Soils at Leddy Park Q&A
This will be an opportunity for community conversation on the Bike Path Rehab soils that are temporarily being stockpiled in the lower Leddy Park parking lot. While additional testing of the stockpile is underway, the results will likely not be available in time for this meeting. That said, both the City and VT DEC are committed to scheduling a second meeting (date TBD) to review the findings and present the soil disposal and/or reuse options once the results are available. In the meantime, the September 22nd meeting will provide a forum for community questions and comments.
We hope that you will be able to attend!
