39. I dunno
Several years ago I did some research for a local environmental group concerning atrazine levels in the water. What I was looking for at the time was how/when measurements were taken. I found out that the state agency tested water by going to midstream in February and only testing the first 6 - 10 inches. What that meant was that they were testing it BEFORE prime runoff times (before spring rains and before winter snow melt off) and that they way they tested the water couldn't detect heavier metals.

While looking for this information I got pretty curious about the pesticides and other toxins that I was running across. That's the only reason I know as much as I do.

I'm don't know about soil lead levels in the inner cities but I can imagine that in some areas it is beyond toxic.

As an aside, a friend of mine used to do asbestos inspection around the country. He had horror stories too.

Do you have some information you can share on the soil lead levels in inner cities?
