Site Geology and Hydrogeology: The site geology consists of a historic fill layer, followed by a glacial deposit layer (sands and gravel), Gardiner's Clay unit, a coarse sand and gravel unit, a gravel, clay and silt unit, and finally a bedrock unit consisting of gneiss, schist and pegmatite. The depth to groundwater ranges from 7 to 17 feet below ground surface, and generally flows to the north.
