Report Shows Park in High Springs is Contaminated
HIGH SPRINGS - A new report shows a popular place to play in High Springs is contaminated.
The sinkhole behind city hall is host to concerts and events.
But a new report finished just before the new year shows that the run-off from the road has contaminated it.
The city just installed a new fence to keep people out of the bottom of the sinkhole.
But commissioner Bob Barnas says he hopes people stay out entirely while it's cleaned up.
Bob Barnas, commissioner, High Springs: "what I would hope for the future of this park is that we come up with a plan to mitigate the pollution that's in the park and that we really don't use this for functions down in there."
Moving forward...Barnas says there's talk of putting plants in the contaminated area to soak up the pollutants.
