Free Soil Lead Screening with Allegheny County Conservation District
April 13 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Bring your soil to ACCD at Grow Pittsburgh’s Garden Resource Center to have it instantly tested for lead and arsenic, for free. These two contaminants are common in urban areas, and bad for health, so it’s always good to check the soil in your yard and garden areas to be safe.
Bring one or more soil samples (dry and crumbled up) in clear plastic Ziploc bags. Staff will test your soil (takes about 1 minute) and talk to you about your results and what you can do to improve the situation. Instructions can be found below:
