Phase I Targeted Brownfields Assessment (TBA) was completed on 5/5/1999.
Phase II Targeted Brownfields Assessment (TBA) was completed on 4/26/2000.
A Cleanup Options Study/Cost Estimate was completed on 4/26/2000.

In 2002, the city of Amesbury utilized grant money from MA Development's Brownfields program to hire a Licensed Site Professional (LSP), John Higgins, to complete a site investigation. Mr. Higgins only found contamination under what is now a riverwalk (public property). Mr. Higgins estimated that the cost of remediation is between $10,000 and $20,000, but the city has not yet looked into how they will fund the remediation process. In March 2002, the buildings collapsed and the city utilized emergency funds to raise the building and left the foundation.
