For the past year, the City and its engineers, T&M Associates, have been working with the state Department of Environmental Protection to properly identify and classify areas of soil contamination discovered at Cavallo Park to allow for their proper remediation and the completion of the improvements to the park.
Based on the results of a series of soil tests, the NJDEP, City, and T&M are in agreement that the contamination near the surface must be addressed. To undertake this remediation, one more series of soil samples and investigations must be completed. Once that occurs, a project will begin to remove the top 12-18 inches of soil and its replacement with certified clean fill. This is a safe, cost-effective way to mitigate contaminants and allow for the improvements to the park to continue.
The work completed to this point is reimbursable to the City at 100% of cost; the excavation and disposal of contaminated materials will be reimbursable to the City at 75% of cost, per NJDEP regulations.
This project will be discussed further at a meeting of the Recreation Commission of the City of Lambertville at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14th at the Justice Center, located at 25 South Union Street in the City. All are welcome to attend.
