Residents should not be worried if they hear blasting in the Fenway area again this week, according to city officials, as the booms are part of scheduled testing.
The Massachusetts State Police have been notified by Charter Environmental, a construction company working on the Muddy River Project in the Fenway area of Boston that they will be conducting Stat-Namic testing this week.
This type of testing consists of extremely loud blasts into the ground to test the strength of existing pilings/support structures located underground. These tests sound very much like cannon blasts or very loud gunshots.
Blasts were scheduled to take place between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. today, and are set for between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.
