of the First Seven Months of a Pilot Lead Project in St. Louis
Why has the City made so little progress in actually removing lead? With lead poisoning rates 7 to 10 times the national average, shouldn't we declare a Lead Emergency?

The City of St. Louis claims that 3300 Nebraska is a showcase block for cleaning up lead. A survey by the Greens found no evidence of success. In October 2005, HEJ gave the City very poor marks on lead poisoning prevention. The Director of Operations has been invited to describe the City's lead programs.
