Clean up on Riverside Drive

There will be two of different kinds... Progress Energy has contracted to do the final remediation of the manufactured gas plant across from CURVE studios & garden, so look for the guys in the white hazmat suits.  Tim Silar, project manager says it will take a couple of weeks to remove and replace 500 tons in 30 truck loads of soil.  Then it will be done, the COA will take possession of the land and hopefully sometime in the next several months, take down the chain link fence so we can access the river.
Then there is "Big Sweep"... an opportunity to volunteer to help clean up the river itself and its roadways thru the efforts of Asheville Greenworks & Riverlink which takes place Saturday, October 1, 2011 meeting @ Asheville Outdoor Center @ 9am until 1pm.
