DEP Secretary Visits Wissahickon Park

Wed, Mar 23rd, 2016

Whitpain welcomed Pennsylvania Secretary of Environmental Protection John Quigley to West Ambler Village's Wissahickon Park yesterday.

The secretary was briefed on the removal and remedial actions taken to date as well as the plans for reopening the park which was closed in 1984 due to asbestos related concerns. Those plans include a number of park amenities and possibly the construction of a multi-purpose recreation building to serve the community.

"We are delighted to have the secretary here to see firsthand the enormous amount of cleanup work that has been completed," said Supervisor Chairman Adam Zucker. "Whitpain is very satisfied with the whole-of-government approach - as led by EPA - that will allow the entire BoRit Site to become a true community asset."

The Township has been coordinating with EPA and the other agencies involved for years to ensure that plans for the park parcel are compatible with the remedial remedy. The agency has determined that "the routine maintenance that a community park would require would provide an added layer of oversight."
