Greenwich High School Food Drive Honors September 11
GHS students held their annual Food Drive to honor the lives of those lost on September 11, 2001. With the help of the GHS Roots & Shoots Club and Heroes Club, students and staff collected non-perishable, non-expired food items. Donations were collected throughout the day and displayed in the middle of the Student Center as a memorial. All donations went to the Neighbor-to-Neighbor food pantry serving our community.
A summary of the update is below, or read the full update:
- Comprehensive site investigation is winding down although environmental monitoring will continue. The Town met with the CTDEEP and EPA in mid-August to review findings of the environmental investigation, respond to regulator questions and discuss the upcoming phases of remediation.
- An updated site-wide Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is being prepared and will be submitted to the CTDEEP and EPA in the fall of 2019. Regulatory review of the site-wide RAP and coordination with the regulators will occur throughout 2019 and early 2020.
- The next phase of remediation, expected to occur during the summer break of 2020, will focus on supporting renovation of athletic Fields 6 and 7.
