The Navy continues to test soil in one portion of the former Naval Training Center Orlando to determine the boundaries of newly discovered contamination. The Navy expects to finish removing contaminated soil within a year after it completes testing, reported the Orlando Sentinel. For residents, the discovery is setting back plans to open Orlando’s first mountain bike park. It also is proving frustrating as the Navy already has ripped up parts of the bike track built by volunteers in its search for contamination. The Navy previously performed an extensive cleanup of the tract before turning it over to the city for use as a park in 2009.
