Abstract
This is a study of lead exposure in the communities of Granite City, Venice, and Madison. It was undertaken because a secondary lead smelter has operated for several decades where the three communities join. The study uncovered very high levels of lead in the soil around the smelter but blood samples of children and adults living in a one-half mile radius of the smelter showed no blood poisoning or unusually high lead levels. Garden vegetables were also analyzed for lead and drinking water records were also reviewed to help gain a total picture of lead exposure.
