Wynn Resorts Completes 2,000th Boring Soil Test At Everett Site
“Contaminants have been leaching into the Mystic River every day for decades, so completing our testing is an important step towards reversing the neglect and transforming this barren brownfield into a spectacular public waterfront park that all can enjoy,” said Robert DeSalvio, President of Wynn Everett. “With testing finished, we can map out our remediation plan and be confident of no surprises when work begins…which will be soon.”
Wynn is expected to spend $20 to $30 million to clean up the waterfront site along the Mystic River that has been inaccessible and unusable to the public for more than 100 years. No public funds will be used to remediate the site. The cleanup is planned to begin in fall of 2015 with construction starting in 2016.
The waterfront greenway will be a highlight of the Wynn Resort in Everett and will include public amenities such as a picnic park, gazebo, viewing deck, pavilion, bicycle and pedestrian paths, retail esplanade with waterfront shopping and dining, water ferry/taxi service to Boston Harbor, living shoreline and more.
