JPPHA Statement about Soil Sampling Analysis


In preparation for construction of the future Jefferson Parkway, field tests to establish baseline soil conditions in the Jefferson Parkway right of way have been ongoing since May. Nearly 250 soil samples have been collected for analysis, with final results expected by the end of the year. The Jefferson Parkway notified the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) today of inconsistent testing results from one soil sample.
