Crews Testing Soil at New Park

Crews Testing Soil at New Park

 

Ground preparation for soil testing began at the site of the future Jean Sweeney Park Tuesday. 

According to an email from the City of Alameda Recreation and Parks Director, Amy Wooldridge, “Work is being done onsite at Sweeney Park today with a bulldozer. They are using a water truck to keep dust down. 

“They will just be clearing very specific areas in order to create the flat ground needed for soil sampling and ground penetrating radar, which is used to determine the soil types,” stated Wooldridge. 

The department needs the soil information to complete the detailed park design.
