EPA Soil Sampling At College Hill Courts Shows Risks Not High And Removal Of Soils Not Necessary

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

The Chattanooga Housing Authority received notification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regarding soil samples obtained from the Housing Authority’s College Hill Courts property earlier this year. 24 soil samples were collected and tested for lead, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, nickel and zinc.

In each instance, the EPA found amounts of lead, arsenic, and chromium that were below the agency’s Removal Management Level (RML). Soil tested for cadmium, copper, nickel and zinc were also found to be at levels that were below concern for the agency. After evaluating the test results, the EPA found that the soil at College Hill Courts “…does not pose an unacceptable health risk.”

Housing Authority Executive Director Elizabeth McCright said, “We appreciate the time spent by the EPA to obtain and analyze soil samples at College Hill Courts as part of their larger soil sample study in the Chattanooga’s Southside. Their findings are very encouraging not only for us, but also for the residents who live in our units and enjoy the playground in College Hill Courts.”

Six Things We Can Do About Mass Shootings - And Response (3)

But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
