Is the city of Frisco moving forward with a formal study of the area of land/residents living within the 2 mile area of the Exide Technologies Plant? I live within that range and many neighbors, myself included, are interested in determining the effects of the airborne lead to our children. We would like to see free voluntary lead testings of children and young adults (possibly conducted by the health dept), and soil samples collected to determine if the lead is negatively impacting Frisco residents. Please advise and if you need resident support/petitions please make that known as well.

We have met with representatives from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Department of State Health Services. Hopefully, we will have an agreed upon testing program within the next month or so.

EPA has conducted soil testing and the results have not yet been published . The city has assisted TCEQ by facilitating working with a property owner to provide a site for an air monitor on their property and by providing a site in the public right of way for the relocation of two existing air monitors. In addition, the city is providing a site on the police headquarters property for a new air monitor to assist with enhancing the air monitoring program. The city has met with representatives from the TCEQ and the Texas Department of Health to discuss possible parameters for a health study as well as funding options. We expect to hear soon from both agencies.

Thanks
George Purefoy
City Manager
