Information gathering by the EPA using ground penetrating radar and conductivity testing at Mt Baldy wrapped up on Tuesday. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Public Information Officer Bruce Rowe says the EPA will now take the results back to analyze and will produce a package of the results for them, which will probably take a couple of weeks. The equipment was brought in on August 12th to determine how a six-year old Illinois boy became buried in eleven-feet of sand for over three-and-a-half hours on July 12th.
Rowe says, other than a second hole that was discovered the first day the EPA brought out their equipment last month, no other holes have been discovered to his knowledge. Mt. Baldy meanwhile remains closed to the public indefinitely.
