Coast Guard Removing Soil For Oak Bluffs Remediation Project

The U.S. Coast Guard is removing over 200 tons of soil around the East Chop Lighthouse in Oak Bluffs as part of a lead remediation project. 

That's according to a story from the Martha’s Vineyard Times. 

Test results of a town-owned parcel adjacent to the lighthouse reportedly yielded a very high lead concentration. 

The Coast Guard says lead in the soils around east chop is the result of previous applications of paint.
