Results Of Lead Tests To Be Presented

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Results finally are in from lead and cadmium tests of residential sites last summer in the Coeur d’Alene Basin.

The Panhandle Health District will explain the results at two meetings this week.

The health district, in conjunction with the state Department of Health and Welfare, collected samples of dirt and house dust last summer on residential properties across the basin. Bloodlead and urine-cadmium tests also were conducted in some households.

The health agencies are trying to see if residents have elevated levels of lead and cadmium in their bodies, and whether it’s related to mining pollution in the basin.

The meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Canyon Elementary School, near the Rose Lake Junction, and 7 p.m. Thursday at Silver Hills Middle School in Osburn. , DataTimes
