Arsenic and lead are toxic metals and can be harmful to
human health, especially for children. They pollute the soil
in many parts of Washington, and can also be found in
products used in our daily lives. Arsenic can be found in
pressure-treated wood and pesticides. Sources of lead
include old paint, gasoline, and lead plumbing.
