The Santa Fe Right of Way, a stretch of open space that used to be a railway line, runs through several neighborhoods in South and Central Berkeley. It’s the site of a bioremediation project that we’ve blogged about in the past, and next week we’re running a workshop there as part of our Soil in the City series.
In this workshop, learn how to test your soil for lead, how to interpret the results, and different strategies for remediation. You will learn about sampling protocols to increase the accuracy in soil testing. We’ll show you the demonstration project underway to remove arsenic from the soil of the Santa Fe Right of Way railroad line using Chinese Brake Ferns. We’ll go over how you can do your own testing, the costs involved, and interpretation of the results. You’ll leave with resources for addressing arsenic pollution in urban soils.
