WESTFIELD — Ryan Geeleher has permission to build four self-storage buildings on North Road, after the Conservation Commission accepted his proposal to perform annual water quality tests on Arm Brook.
The commission had previously asked that Geeleher Enterprises drill test wells to make sure that no pollution was seeping into the brook or groundwater from the business. Geeleher’s engineer, Ryan Nelson from R. Levesque Associates, told the board on Tuesday that shallow ledge — about 6 feet below the surface in most places — makes wells impractical.
Rob Levesque, from the same engineering firm, said he consulted with an expert in environmental monitoring, who suggested designating two test sites in the brook itself. Before construction, after construction, and then annually while the storage facility is operating, Geeleher will test the water quality of Arm Brook as it crosses North Road, entering his property, and at the point downstream from where any runoff from the property would enter.
