Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Fort Worth Federal Center
Park is safe for use, city says

FORT WORTH - An environmental study has found portions of Greenbriar
Park are polluted with arsenic and other poisons, but the city says the
park is safe and has no plans to remove the contaminants.

Instead, the city will excavate chunks of decades-old asphalt it found
in a creek feeding a small lake on the 49-acre park site, according to
the three-volume assessment.

The study, conducted by Enercon Services of Dallas, included testing of
57 soil samples and the digging of 14 exploratory trenches as deep as 12
feet to search for suspected chemical waste and debris.

The consultant's report does not identify the source of the pollution,
which is suspected to be largely from the adjacent Fort Worth Federal
Center, which was used by the military for decades to store raw materials.
