Radford High School

On April 29, 2016, the Navy completed work to restore the football field at Radford High School. 

Here are the facts:

  • The Navy expended $9.2 million of specially designated federal environmental restoration funds.
  • Work performed by the Navy included:
    • hired the school/DOE’s requested turf subcontractor
    • installed sod (not merely hydroseeding or grass plugs) to complete the field restoration faster;
    • selected upgraded type of grass at the school/DOE facilities’ request
    • graded and shaped the field before installing the sod in accordance with DOE's specific request;
    • extended the initial sod maintenance period by the DOE's requested turf company from 30 days to 60 days, which included mowing/fertilizing; aerating and top dressing the field (leveling the field with sand). 
    • removed the field's old bleachers, installed a new concrete pad for DOE to install new bleachers, and power washed the new bleachers for immediate use.
  • Photos taken on April 27 show a green and smooth field. The State DOE has had the responsibility to maintain the field since late April.

"We have a deep and abiding relationship with Radford High School, whose namesake is Admiral William Radford, a Navy hero during and after World War II. Over nearly two years the Navy spent approximately $9.2 million remediating the field and track area at the school under an Environmental Restoration, Navy (ERN) project. The Navy completed work on the field utilizing the State Department of Education's (DOE) recommended turf contractor, including additional work requested by DOE, in late April. The Navy completed the football field portion of the work at or above standards set forth in the Department of Defense Unified Facility Criteria for football fields. At the final inspection on April 27, 2016, Navy's construction manager, Navy remedial project manager, and Hawaiian Turfgrass owner advised DOE personnel to provide proper maintenance and weekly mowing. Proper turf maintenance would have evened out natural field undulations over time. DOE acknowledged in a letter to Navy Region Hawaii that DOE had assumed responsibility for taking care of the field. After a careful review and several inspections, the Navy is confident we not only met the contractual agreement, but also provided services above and beyond what was initially requested."
