Groups warn about arsenic in soil They tout cleanup at 10 homes as model
The Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, in partnership with United Steelworkers of America, on Thursday launched a $35,000 project to remove from 10 eastern New Orleans homes what the center's director, Beverly Wright, called "contaminated soils" left by Hurricane Katrina's flood.
The project, dubbed "A Safe Way Back Home," will remove 2 to 3 inches of existing soil, replace it and resod the yards of the homes, which include Wright's residence. Wright called the project a model for the rest of the city.
Tom Harris, administrator of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality's environmental technology division, called it "completely unnecessary."
