Crescent Field Soccer Field NOT a lead concern!
Release Date: April 18, 2008

The New Jeresey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS) conducted a study on lead content in artificial Turf Fields. The fiber content of the turf that was tested was polyethylene, nylon, or a mix of polyethylene and nylon. The ten fields with polyethylene had very low or undetectable levels of lead in the fibers. Two fields with nylon fibers had high levels of lead.

The Crescent Field Soccer Field is a FieldTurf artificial turf field made of polyethylene fibers. The ten fields made of this same material had very low or undetectable levels of lead in the fibers.

Accordingly, the Crescent Field Soccer Field is not a concern for lead.
