Soil testing underway at water park site

The group looks over a map showing the location of dozens of future boring sites on the property.

     In a step that local leaders say illustrates developer Port Royal’s determination to bring a massive water park resort here, engineers were on site Tuesday preparing to take soil samples in key areas.
