Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Ball Fields Made from Former Asbestos Site

Where an asbestos plant once stood, ball fields are now being put in. The township of Berkeley Heights, New Jersey and its respective county purchased the 17 acre site back in 2004. Five years later, the site has been cleaned up and is ready for the ball fields to be constructed.

42,000 tons of soil had been contaminated by asbestos and petroleum leaks and had to be removed from the site. The initial projected cost was $1 million, but the task came out to $6.5 million. Now the county has granted a $3.85 million contract to a developer to put ball fields, a concession stand, restrooms and parking into its 13 acres of land.

The other four acres of land belong to Berkeley Heights and still do not have plans for renovation.
