Armory to Undergo Phase II Testing

October 11, 2019

The City recently received notice that the consultant hired to complete the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment of the Armory Building at 300 Second St. is moving forward with additional Phase II testing of the interior and exterior of the Armory Building and Site as part of the Brownfield grant awarded to the City last year. The firm, Weston Solutions, Inc. will be conducting a subsurface investigation to confirm the presence of an underground storage tank (UST) and also for underground utilities on October 15th. They will also be conducting soil borings for soil sample collection and install temporary groundwater monitoring wells on October 16th. They then plan to come back on October 30th in order to collect groundwater samples and abandon the temporary wells. A lead-based paint and asbestos materials survey will take place inside the the building at the same time on October 30th. The Phase I report is available for public review at the Clerk’s Office in City Hall. Once the extent of any contamination is known, the City may be able to qualify for additional Brownfield clean-up funds. These efforts are a necessary first step in order to make any decisions regarding the redevelopment, demolition or sale of the property.
