Drilling to learn what's underneath

The parking lot next to the WCA carving shed on Front Street was temporarily closed last Thursday as workers under the direction of Shannon & Wilson drilled soil samples from the property. The Anchorage-based environmental consulting firm is in Wrangell to examine several borough-owned properties for possible contamination, including near the Wrangell Municipal Light and Power generator building on Case Avenue. The Front Street parking lot was formerly a gas station. The city purchased the property around 2011, according to Capital Facilities Director Amber Al-Haddad.
