Kerry Wood Cubs Field

Kerry Wood Cubs Field

Project Description

Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Park District are partnered with the Chicago Cubs and plan to construct the new Kerry Wood Cubs Field on a vacant parcel.  Based on the findings of an earlier Phase I ESA, the need for a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)/Comprehensive Site Investigation was warranted to assess the presence of subsurface contamination due to historical property uses and their potential impact on the planned construction. CPS elected to enroll the site in the SRP program. The project is currently ongoing.


GSG advanced 24 soil borings and collected surface and subsurface soil samples. The analytical results were compared to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) Tiered Approach to Corrective Action Objectives (TACO), Tier 1 Remediation Objectives.

GSG also prepared a soil management plan based on the results of the site investigation.  The design plan shows the vertical and horizontal extent of each type of waste streams at the site and requirements for soil handling and management during construction.
