Remediating Arsenic in Soil: Learning from the Santa Fe Right of Way Project

This event has passed.

Learn how to test your soil for lead, how to interpret the results, and different strategies for remediation. You will learn about sampling protocols to increase the accuracy in soil testing. We’ll show you the demonstration project underway to remove arsenic form the soil of the Santa Fe Right of Way railroad line using Chinese Brake Ferns. We’ll go over how you can do your own testing, the costs involved, and interpretation of the results. You’ll leave with resources for addressing arsenic pollution in urban soils.
