Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ft. Worth Army Depot
Contamination report is due

FORT WORTH - A preliminary evaluation of Greenbriar Park shows that
pollution from an old nearby Army depot "poses a high risk of adverse
environmental impact," according to city records.

But testing on fish from the park's lake measured only trace amounts of
toxic metals and pesticides that should not pose a health risk, records show.

The final report from consultant Enercon Services of Dallas is expected
to be submitted to the city by Wednesday, said Brian Boerner, director
of the city's Environmental Management Department.

The report will include the results of testing on soil and fish tissue,
and perhaps recommendations on how to clean the park, which sits among
rows of modest homes and businesses four miles south of downtown.

Residents say they are eager to know whether the park has been
contaminated by the Fort Worth Federal Center, which the military used
for years to store raw materials.
