MUNCIE -- The city of Muncie is planning to conduct an investigation of the soil and groundwater across the street from the former Dayton Steel Foundry (Dayton Walter Corp.), 600 E. Highland Ave.

City officials believe the nine-acre brownfield site, bordered by McCulloch Park, White River, Cardinal Greenway and Highland, has redevelopment potential.

"It's a decent location," said Gretchen Cheesman, director of the city's Unsafe Building Hearing Authority. "It could be used for residential purposes. It has a nice river view."

An Indianapolis consulting firm named Symbiont recently completed an environmental assessment of the site, which is mostly wooded now.
