Testing Shows Dangerous Levels Of Lead In Two St. Louis Schools

Exposure to high levels of lead in older paints can present an extreme hazard to one’s health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention note that exposure to lead can cause reproductive problems, high blood pressure, nerve disorders, memory and concentration problems, brain damage, developmental and behavior issues, and hearing problems.

Despite these health concerns, recent testing showed dangerous levels of the contaminant in two St. Louis Missouri Schools.

The Missouri Environmental Danger was discovered after contractors conducting renovations at the schools reported to school district officials that painting crew were not properly containing and removing the lead-based paints from the buildings. Instead, the contaminated paint chips and dust were being swept outside.

According to KMOV 4 News, an investigation was launched into the incident by the district’s Hazmat consultant, who confirmed the improper procedures, along with dangerous levels of lead in the air at the site.

The school district later released a statement saying that the contractor responsible for the project will foot the cleanup bill and that the schools will continue to remain closed until the project is completed and further testing can confirm that the building is safe for students and staff.

The St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyers with CofmanTownsley recognize how dangerous exposure to high levels of lead can be and the firm is here to help anyone who has been harmed by such exposure.
