Port Richmond Lead Contamination site

    Newer Older

    Cleanup was suppose to start in the beginning of the summer according to them when we called. For inquiries or complaints call 1-800-346-5009. Extremely high levels of lead contamination in the soil at this location.

    Apparently is says precautions are being taken to protect us. Hmm, all I see is tarps on a fence for years and no one doing anything. On their site below my photo is states: "Editor's Note: The opinions expressed in Greenversations are those of the author. They do not reflect EPA policy, endorsement, or action, and EPA does not verify the accuracy or science of the contents of the blog."

    Unfortunately this is not my opinion, it's a fact.
