Fishbone meal intervention in polluted toxic soil in the South Bronx
Playground 134 is adjacent to a congested freeway and soil tests reveal almost four times the maximum level of lead that the EPA deems safe. Children play here, exposed to toxic soil, a modest improvement from the decades of exposure to leaded gasoline fumes. By integrating fishbone meal at this site, the lead molecules become no longer bio-available. However, much more fishbone is required to address the problem of urban soil exposed to decades of pollution.
