The Blast Furnace Area program was started in July 2005. The program consisted of the following:

Investigation Type Number of samples
Boreholes 12
Monitor Wells 30
Test pits 48
Surface soil samples 27

In all, over 508 analyses were performed on approximately 168 soil and water samples. Preliminary data indicate that some metals and PAHs are elevted in fill materials, and isolated area of petroleum impact are present where fuel or lubricants were used for long periods. These types of impacts are typical of industrial operations dating from the mid-20th Century.
