‘Ghost factories,’ lead poisoning … and Ohio State science that can help

Great story on USA Today’s website (video, 5:34) about the problem of lead-poisoned soils in cities, including in Cleveland — under homes and in yards, and mostly unknown to the families who live there. And while he isn’t mentioned in the story, our own Nick Basta, School of Environment and Natural Resources, has developed a way to solve the problem (doing much of his testing in Cleveland) — and to do it for a lot less money than ever before. Check it out (video, 2:15).
