125+ Children, Family Friendly Frisco Locations Within 5-Mile Radius of Exide Lead Smelter
(UPDATE: In April 2012, the Frisco citizens group, Frisco Unleaded, announced the results of a lead deposition study that showed that at least 150 tons of lead had been dumped over most of Frisco over the almost 50 years the Exide lead smelter has been in operation. A link to a downloadable copy of that map, with locations mapped like the one in this story, and more information about study, can be found here.
And Lead Free Frisco was curious about how many people of what age lived in the lead deposition study area. By looking at U.S. Census tract data, we determined that more than 38,000 children and young people under the age of 19 live within the lead deposition report boundaries.
