MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The state Department of Environmental Conservation said soil testing has reveal that fill carted onto Memorial Field is contaminated with coal, ash and slag, according to Lohud.com.

The DEC said the presence of such contaminates often are considered “contaminants of concern,” said Lohud.com.

The city was given a notice of violation last month by the DEC, saying construction and demolition debris was dumped without a permit, added the newsite.

The violation notice comes after the state conducted its own on-site inspections twice earlier this year, were soil samples found to contain contaminants, said Lohud.com.
