Subject: [CPEO-MEF] DUMP SITES: Honolulu (HI) high school on old Navy dump site
Radford High track off limits because of hazardous waste contamination

HONOLULU - Radford High School's athletic field is the focus of a toxic waste cleanup. Although state health officials say there is no risk to students, staff or parents.

It wasn't exactly the way Radford High School wanted to kickoff construction of its new track, but serious soil contamination has sidelined work at the facility.

Radford has been trying to get a new track for 20 plus years. Now that construction started on the $2.2 million job it's already stopped because of a significant amount of lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury found underground.


The area used to be a crater, but the military bulldozed it and made it a dump site. Later Radford was built in the 1950's. The football and baseball fields were inside that landfill area.
