In 2002, the Georgia Pacific Lumber Company shut down their 400 acre lumber mill in the City of Fort Bragg; the facility takes up almost the entire coastline of the city. The local community has proposed many uses for the site: a marine research center, a conference center, a world-class golf course, a smaller mill, or possibly a new community college. Before any construction can begin, a survey was necessary to determine if there were any remaining hazardous materials in the soil that required remediation. DMS collected several vibracore samples in various locations at the former lumber mill. At least two vibracore samples were collected at each of the seven ponds on site, using an airboat for push cores, and a crane was used for vibracore samples down to 10 feet below the mud line.
