Description Recently, the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) and the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (Health Department) became aware of lead pollution from a home lead melting operation at 6719 South “D” Street in Tacoma. Lead is a toxic metal that can cause health problems to children and adults. Health Department staff will be visiting property owners in the area to offer free soil lead testing.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
