Contaminated Arsenal site to be 'passive recreation,' says state By Meghann Ackerman Wicked Local Watertown October 1, 2009WATERTOWN - The Department of Conservation and Recreation has made public its plans for a contaminated site it will inherit from the Army Corps of Engineers, and had said it will stay active in the cleanup process.
Once polychlorinated biphenyl, commonly called PCBs, are cleaned from the nearly 12-acre parcel at 670 Arsenal St., DCR will take over the site for "passive recreation," DCR Deputy Chief Engineer Michael Misslin wrote in a Sept. 22 letter to the corps. Land set aside for passive recreation is usually undeveloped, as opposed to turning it into soccer fields or other spaces for "active" recreation.
DCR spokeswoman Wendy Fox said DCR would be meeting with the Army Corps and the state's Department of Environmental Protection in the next few weeks to discuss the cleanup process. Fox said it was too soon to know when DCR would get control of the Arsenal site.
