soil contamination on the high line

  • Subject: [cg] soil contamination on the high line

I saw a presentation on New York's High Line the other night. According to the 
presentation, the plan is to rip out all of the volunteer plants that have over 
the years sprung up. Part of the reason given for pulling them up and 
replanting is that the soil is contaminated (where the contaminated soil that 
is removed is going wasn't addressed). My first thought was, "aren't the plants 
that are growing there now working to decontaminate the soil."
