Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Old Town, Park City, Utah
Soil haul launches

Dump truck crews early in the week started hauling contaminated soil from an Old Town site to the Richardson Flats storage facility where problem soil has been put for safekeeping.

City Hall and a nearby developer own separate parts of the Old Town land, which is known as the Alice Lode and is situated just past a gate at the end of King Road. The developer, King Development Group, LLC, owns about nine acres and City Hall has just less than two acres.

Jeff Schoenbacher, who is City Hall's environmental specialist, says the soil at the site contains lead, arsenic and cadmium. He says the crews intend to remove 3,000 cubic-yards of material, about 250 dump truck loads, from the former silver-mining site.
