Most of the project areas will be restored with good-quality topsoil, and should be solid candidates for new tree plantings in the future. Soil quality will be tested after construction to determine when and where we can put new trees. Other areas in the park will likely need more time for soil remediation.
New wetland plants will also be added along the north shoreline next year once the water level has returned to normal. Topsoil test will be used to determine the plant species that will work best.
