MIAMI (CBSMiami) – High levels of arsenic found in the soil of Chapman Field Park in Coral Gables most likely came from construction of the ball fields.
The toxic metal was in the dirt used to build the baseball fields, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.
The county is now waiting for a completed evaluation and clean up plan before they can say when the fields will be re-opened.
Samples of soil taken from outside the park showed no sign of contamination.
