Arsenic and lead in play-area soil can pose a risk to children
. We provide free soil sampling and soil safety actions for play areas within the program service area (see map for boundary). We sample public and private schools, licensed childcares, parks, camps, and multi-family public housing.
Are you starting a new childcare facility?
The Department of Early Learning requires childcare facilities located in the program area to sign up for soil sampling before getting a license. See our interactive map to find out if you are in our service area.
