Recent test results of lead levels from the Doe Run Co. in Herculaneum could either show that the situation has deteriorated or that it has improved, depending on which entity is interpreting the results.
In July, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency directed Doe Run to expand the area to collect samples of lead in the surface soil and gravel driveways at residential properties within one mile of the lead smelter.
According to the EPA, of 372 properties sampled, 129 had at least one area exceeding the 400 parts/million action level for lead.
Doe Run sees the results differently.
