GHS Fields Remediation Project

In July 2011, during the course of excavation work for the Greenwich High School building project, unexpected soil conditions were discovered in the fields. Comprehensive air, water and soil sampling was conducted, revealing levels of contaminants in the soil above acceptable limits. Interim remediation strategies were implemented and the fields were cleared as safe for use. The Greenwich Public Schools/Board of Education and the Town of Greenwich are working in collaboration to address the environmental concerns of the GHS fields. Licensed environmental professionals have been contracted to plan for and implement a comprehensive Remedial Action Plan (RAP). The Town of Greenwich and State Departments of Health and Environmental Protection and the Federal EPA are also involved in consultation on the testing and remediation plans.
