Lead In The Soil

Monday 30 January 2017

Macquarie University VegeSafe project research shows high levels of lead in inner city soil – generally a legacy of previous paints and petrol. This may be a concern if you have children or an edible garden and the Macquarie project provides free soil metal screening. The research is HERE and screening applications HERE

For general information about lead and how you can prevent problems, see the EPA website, HERE.
