Environmental assessment

Soil test

  • The City checked the property for soil contamination.
  • The assessment found diesel fuel soil contamination about 8-10 feet below the surface.

The name of the test the City performed is called a limited Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA).

Risk to visitors

It is unlikely that people on the site will come into contact with it.


The City did not investigate all possible environmental risks. The City can't say for sure there are no environmental risks on the site.
