A serious environmental contamination is discovered at a suburban St. Louis elementary school.
Nuclear weapons were produced in that area during World War II.
The recent report by Boston Chemical Data Corp. confirms the fears of many at the Jana Elementary School in the Hazelwood district in Florissant about radioactive pollution.
Parents want this mess cleaned up. So the report is likely to be the number one topic at tomorrow’s school board meeting.
Boston Chemical is warning people that inhaling or ingesting the radioactive materials can cause major injury.
And they recommend remedial action.
