John Deere assists in park renovations

In Ankeny, Iowa, the green space at the Chautauqua Park has undergone several refinements. According to the Des Moines Register, the most recent improvements are being concluded with the help of Classic John Deere and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. During the beginning of the 20th Century, the park grounds were once used as an industrial landfill. Now, extensive work is being done to remove all the contaminants from the site.
Now that more homes and schools are being constructed within the area, the city has made it a priority to open the park in August of 2012. Crews have surpassed the Environmental Protection Agency's standards when cleaning the park. Additionally, the old landfill was covered with a geo-composite membrane and an extra 30 inches of topsoil.
