PROXIMITY TO SCHOOL GROUNDS
As depicted in the following images, the Atlas Metals disposal site borders the grounds of Jordan High School, with massive piles of metal waste visible from the school and surrounding areas. The State Regulatory Agency has found polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) throughout Atlas' soil along with residue of burning toxic chemicals on the school's wall.
PROJECTILES AND OTHER HAZARDS
Large pieces of shrapnel have been ejected from Atlas Metals onto school grounds, which threaten to injure or kill students and staff members. Bordering high voltage wires pose an additional danger. Dust clouds of toxic fumes are blown over to school grounds as well.
DISCARD METAL PILES
The following images depict close-ups of the piles of shrapnel and other hazardous materials by the school.
The Department of Toxic Substances Control under the Environmental Protection Agency has conducted an investigation into Atlas Metals and the contamination of surrounding areas.
