CVSD location contamination

Reading about the purchase by Central Valley School District of a century-old gun range on which to build a new high school is concerning for the absence of any mention of plans for lead contamination removal.

Gun range facilities are known to be contaminated by this nerve toxin.Construction workers, neighbors, school students and staff will be exposed to the lead unless it it removed from the soil prior to construction.

CVSD should let the public know that it is aware of the contamination problem and has budgeted for removing lead from the site.
