OEHS received a letter from the Department of Toxic Substances Control, who concurred that the work has been successfully completed. The perimeter fencing restricting access to the lawn/landscaped areas can also be removed; however, it has remained in place to ensure the sod gets fully established.
Soil/landscape removal activities at the landscaped area at Rowan Ave School commenced on 10/1/16 and were completed on 10/3/16. Sod was installed on 10/5/16. The fencing will remain in place until the sod is established.
Soil from the one affected tree well has been replaced and the temporary fencing has been taken down. The District is working on scheduling the removal of soil in the larger fenced grass area. This work is anticipated to be completed by the end of the Thanksgiving break.
Work to remove soil at one affected tree well will begin this Saturday, August 27, 2017. The work is expected to be completed this weekend. Soil removal activities at other fenced off landscaped areas will follow in the near future. The school and Parents will be notified before the additional work takes place.
