Crews are expected to start cleanup efforts at Kershaw Park beach on Tuesday.
According to the Messenger Post, city officials say they will attempt to remove all contaminated materials from the swimming area via excavation. They also say that the excavation will continue until all materials are removed.
The area has been closed since July after a black goo substance was found at the beach. Testing revealed that the goo was likely degraded motor oil from vehicles dating back to the 1920's and 1930's.
