What parks are part of the independent scientific study?

Environmental studies will be conducted at the five parks mentioned in the student’s report: East Durham Park, East End Park, Walltown Park, Lyon Park, and Northgate Park. 

Environmental assessment experts, Mid-Atlantic Associates, have been hired to conduct this study. Mid-Atlantic Associates is an engineering and environmental consulting firm that has worked in Durham for a number of years and provided their expertise on many large-scale projects, including a Brownfields assessment and remediation services to support the redevelopment of Golden Belt in downtown Durham. 

Mid-Atlantic will conduct an environmental assessment of all five parks following the guidelines established through the NCDEQ’s Registered Environmental Consultant Program.
