ROUGE PARK DIRT RELOCATION TO BEGIN THIS WEEK

 ROUGE PARK DIRT RELOCATION TO BEGIN THIS WEEK
 DETROIT, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of Detroit has authorized


John Carlo, Inc. to begin removing the soil that has moved beyond the original fill limit line on the west side of the ski hill at Rouge Park. The work, which has been approved by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), will begin the week of Jan. 13.
 According to Dan Krichbaum, director of the Detroit Recreation Department, the work is necessary because the fill site has expanded beyond its original limits.
 "Approximately 50,000 cubic yards of dirt that has encroached into the wetland and floodplain areas previously designated by the MDNR will be moved to the east side of the existing ski hill, resulting in some deviation from the original plan configuration along the east and south sides of the hill," Krichbaum said.
 "Upon completion, the hill will be capped and hydro seeded into a grassy area. Typical wetland vegetation will be restored in the appropriate areas within the floodplain."
 The city has contracted the engineering and geological consulting firm of NTH Consultants, LTD to monitor all of the work being done on the Rouge Ski Hill site.
 The Rouge Ski Hill is being developed with dirt taken from St. Aubin Park and Porterfield's Marina Village under the supervision of the MDNR.
 "All soils were extensively tested prior to being brought to the Rouge Site," Krichbaum stressed. "Only dirt that was determined safe by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources was transported to the Rouge Ski Hill site. Any soil found to be unacceptable for Rouge Park was either enclosed within a containment cell at the Porterfield's Marina Village site, or taken to a properly licensed sanitary landfill."
 With more than 1,200 acres of rolling hills and open spaces. Rouge Park is the largest park in the City of Detroit. In addition to the new ski hill, the park is slated for several improvements that will greatly enhance its recreational facilities.
