Building? State Parks has taken proactive steps to address noise & water quality Environmental Noise Impact Study • An independent firm was hired to evaluate the daytime and night average sound levels of the Green Hill Property, and the current ambient noise levels at the adjacent residential properties. • Once the plant is in operation, a second evaluation will be conducted to confirm that the new sewage facility is not a disturbance and is within the character of the existing sound levels. State Parks has taken proactive steps to address water quality & noise Monitoring Wells • Three monitoring wells have been have been installed at the Green Hill Property. • The wells were sampled on a quarterly basis for 1 year. • The Intent was to establish existing water quality characteristics. Water Sampling • Four residential water wells were also sampled on a quarterly basis for 1 year. • State Parks intends to re-sample these wells in the future.
