Stream Bank Remediation 2020
E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Corteva Agriscience, began remediating mercury contamination along the South River in 2016. Since then, five river bank areas have been remediated and restored . In February 2020, work began in North Park where approximately 1,500 feet of river bank was remediated. Several park improvements were completed as part of the project, including provisions for the Greenway extension, improved river vistas and access, a new basketball court, a canoe/kayak ramp, and a river walking path (see artist rendering below).
