Toxic Soil Found at Bayfront Park. By Geniusofdespair
In the 80's they decided that Bayfront Park was too flat and added fill to make it a bit more interesting. DERM has now found that the fill added is toxic and must be removed or capped. DERM decided to test all City parks after they found toxic material in other parks.
The areas in question in Bayfront Park might be closed off to the public if the cleanup is not swiftly completed. The City, although they paid for the cleanup at other parks, will not pay for the cleanup at Bayfront, they want them to pay for their own cleanup. All those Ultra people, I hope they didn't eat the dirt.
(Thanks to Carlos Gimenez, The County Department is not called DERM anymore but I can't recall nor do I care to use their new name).
