Site Environmental Assessment
A Site Characterization was completed in 2004 and no significant MGP contamination was encountered.
Site Health Assessment
No evidence of former gas holders or waste material was found in the investigation. Review of data indicates that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in soil are at levels that do not indicate a public health concern. Exposure to groundwater is unlikely since the area is served by public water supply.
