Soil treatment and excavation work to remove the soil containing lead in two areas of the park (the Eastern Playground along Beaver Street and an area approximately 20 feet by 20 feet on the northeast side of the park) will begin on or about October 13, 2015. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has approved this treatment and excavation plan, which is being conducted by Avery Dennison Corporation and the City of Framingham. The plan includes air monitoring during treatment and excavation activities so that the work will not impact the surrounding community.
The work areas will be indicated by fenced and restricted areas along Beaver Street, including the playground and a section of the parking lot in front of the basketball court. During this process, the north side of the Beaver Street parking lot will be available to the public; one basketball court will be available in the evenings after 5 p.m.
