Question

Are there any requirements for the removal of old research projects from the North Campus trails? There is one old project that has been lying on the side of the Baseline trail for several years now. There is a large electrical cable and a broken metal box. It is a bit of an eyesore, and a potential hazard for a dog or skier.

Response

Departments that conduct research on North Campus are supposed to remove all the equipment from the field at the conclusion of the project, but as you are seeing this doesn’t always happen. Our trails manager will clean up old projects when time allows. This will be forwarded to the trails manager for inspection. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
