Default Environmental Concerns

Two environmental concerns to consider --

1. The railroad ties are treated with creosote. The City of Laconia recently had to do a cleanup near a ball field due to creosote, and it was considered a hazardous site. The creosote leaches into the soil, so any construction will likely release the creosote into the lake.

2. There is a regulation that there canít be any construction, grading changes or landscape changes within 150í of the lake. Everyone is held to this restriction, including the proposed WOW Trail.
