A soil sampling event will be conducted by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) at the Royalton-Hartland Central School District property in Middleport to evaluate soil conditions on this property.

The school yard has been sampled before and a partial soil removal was performed in 1996 and 1999 in the vicinity of the football field. This additional sampling is necessary to fully define the extent of the arsenic contamination on the remainder of the property and to determine exactly what needs to be removed to completely address the school property.
