The Tacoma Smelter Plume is a 1,000 square mile area in Pierce, King, and Thurston Counties. If you live in the Tacoma Smelter Plume, you may have arsenic and lead in the dirt in your yard. Arsenic and lead are chemicals that can cause health problems.
Children under the age of 6 are at greatest risk. Gardeners, landscapers, construction workers, and other people who work in the dirt are also at risk.
You can help protect your family from arsenic and lead in dirt by following some simple steps we call Healthy Actions. Find out more about your property and if it qualifies for free sampling or cleanup HERE!
