Lead Contamination and Remediation in Soil
Anna Jensen
2001 - 2002 Fellow

The project asked the classes to act as consulting engineers to help a smelting company decide how to handle lead contamination on their property. A presentation from the smelting company along with a memo outlining the conditions on the site started the project off.

Contaminated soil was provided by the company. To complete this project the students performed background research, developed experiments, collected and analyzed data and finally decided on a best course of action for the company. Their final products were a formal report and a presentation to the smelting company.
