See below for a brief description of the soil correction that was completed on both the Ice Arena and All-Purpose Facility.
Soil borings indicated that fill had been placed previously, and there was no record of compaction of the fill at the time it was placed. This is considered “uncontrolled fill.” In order to ensure that the facilities do not experience unexpected settlement, the fill that had previously been placed was re-excavated and put back in place with proper compaction methods and then tested. There was not any “contaminated soil.” There were some areas that had buried soils with high organic content (topsoil). These organic soils were removed from the site and replaced with imported material that meets the specifications for fill material.
