Dirt Alert! Protect Your Family

Children are at greatest risk from arsenic and lead. If you live in the Tacoma Smelter Plume, you may be exposed to arsenic and lead in the soil.  One of the most important things you can do is take healthy actions and make sure your whole family does, too!

We Can Help You Take Healthy Actions

Ecology and local health departments in King County, Pierce County  and Thurston County have brochures and other outreach materials.
