We always recommend practicing Healthy Actions. Most yards won’t qualify for soil removal and replacement. If your yard does not qualify, this does not mean levels of arsenic and lead in your yard are safe. Long-term exposure, even to low levels of arsenic and lead, can impact your health. Healthy actions are simple actions you can take every day to reduce your risk.

What do my results mean?
I don’t qualify for soil removal and replacement – now what?
Take Healthy Actions! For Arsenic, levels below 20 parts per million (ppm) are safe. Lead is unsafe for growing children at any level. We highly recommend Healthy Actions any time lead is at or above 250 ppm. Healthy Actions will protect your family from other contaminants – like pesticides, fertilizers, and animal waste – as well!
There could still be areas where arsenic and lead remain in the soil. These areas include:
- Any area that required a set-back during soil removal (could be several feet):
- Under existing buildings
- Near foundations
- Around some plants
- On steep slopes or cuts
- Soils in crawl spaces
- Nearby and neighboring properties
- Undeveloped properties or other wooded areas
- Gravel alleys
This is why we recommend always practicing Healthy Actions. Even though your property may have had contaminated soil removed, there can still be arsenic and lead in your environment. Keep your family healthy!
