The City of Omaha has proposed constructing a playground and trees on the Riverfront, where the ASARCO smelting plant once stood. When the area was first constructed, leaded soil was encapsulated in a barrier with six feet of clean soil placed on top of the barrier. What does this mean for the construction of a playground? What does this mean for Omaha, and for the efforts of lead poisoning prevention in Omaha? Hopefully this infographic helps.
