About the Event

Event Thursday, March 29, 2018 - 6:30pm

Location

Public Safety Building
220 Washington St.
A public information session regarding the temporary closure of Conway field and playground will be held on Thursday, March 29, at the Public Safety Building (Police Headquarters) at 220 Washington St. The consultants in charge of soil testing and City staff will be on hand to discuss the testing results and next steps as well as to answer questions.
 
As previously noted, soil testing conducted in preparation for the proposed renovation of Conway field revealed contamination in the soil, including lead and PCBs above regulatory limits, requiring its closure. Initial samples of the soil in the adjacent playground did not reveal contaminants exceeding regulatory limits. However, as a precautionary measure, the playground is closed for additional testing as well.
