CSX says contamination near old rail yard poses no risks By Mark Basch Florida Times-Union September 1, 2009CSX Transportation says there is no danger to residents, but it is letting one Westside neighborhood know that it has found some contaminants in ground water near an old rail yard site.
The rail yard south of Beaver Street between McDuff Avenue and Edgewood Avenue ceased operations in 1985. But Jacksonville-based CSX still owns the property and has a dispatch center and other operations adjacent to the site. The company has been monitoring ground water there since then and discovered last year that contamination had spread to new areas. Recently, it found contaminants in water 20 feet below the surface in a neighborhood just south of the rail yard site.
CSX said the contaminants include solvents that were used as de-greasers and cleaners and also some petroleum products.
CSX said the affected residents, which are largely on Warrington Street, are on city water hookups and should not be affected by the contamination.
