Study: Lead Levels Skyrocket During Post-K Rebuilding
We've made a lot of noise about our lead-contaminated playgrounds. But a new Tulane University study shows there's no shortage of lead in our homes since the federal flood, as well. Researchers were "surprised" to find that more than 60 percent of homes in post-K New Orleans had dangerously high lead levels, and that the hazard cut across income demographics. The research examined indoor dust and yard samples in occupied homes during 2007-08, found that lead levels were 37 percent higher than they were at the turn of the millenium.
Getting the Lead Out
The Vocal Citizens Behind the Closure - and Cleanup - of a Contaminated Bywater Park
Between the time Laura Grenda's son began playing at Bywater's Mickey Markey Park when he was six months old and last month's closure of the park to remediate the "off the charts" levels of lead in the soil, all that changed was public awareness about the toxins.
Whether citizens or city officials noticed, the toxins were always there.
