Harvard Community Services Center Collaborations: HCSC is doing this work to ensure that there are no environmental hazards in the soil. Please view link below. https://youtu.be/HXmvuxLnzGo
The Manik and Smith group used the drill rig to get samples of dirt from the ground level all the way to 20 feet in the ground.
These samples will undergo testing to see what type of hazards lie within the soil (Since it was a former gas station site there is likely contamination).
Armed with information from the testing, the Manik Smith group will be able to make an informed decision about how to best handle the site, and mitigate any potential environmental hazard that may be on the site.
This will provide the community with a clean lot that they can use for a community gardens or possible commercial development. This project is paid for by the OHIOEPA as part of their abandoned underground storage tank program.
