On Friday, a geotechnical sampling was conducted in support of the Davey Glen Park Project. The geotechnical engineers collected samples of the soil to evaluate the amount of fill at the site and help determine if measures are needed when building the park. The results will be sent to the Parks and Recreation Department in October.
