Frisco city fails to meet new federal Lead guidelines.

Asked by Raj_1999, Frisco, TX Thu Nov 18, 2010

I was thinking to buy a home in Frisco but came across the news this week .
"Exide's Frisco plant is the only facility in the south-central United States that has been identified as not meeting the new lead standard. The battery-recycling plant emitted about 1.67 tons of lead during its operations last year. The 46-year-old lead smelter won't meet the new federal air-quality standard for lead has had many residents of the growing Collin County suburb concerned about health effects.

Hi Raj.

There must be another place to live in TX with less toxic fallout from manufacturing, right?

I'd find it if I were you.

GOOD LUCK.

The company has been cooperating with the city and is offering free lead testing to any Frisco resident. Lead levels are something that can be very dangerous, but you have to get them into your system for that to happen. The city monitors water levels very closely. Unless you are eating the dirt, lead has very little potential to make you sick. The commercial areas are very far from any kind of agricultural areas so the risk of food contaminants are quite small.

Perhaps you could try a city a little further south? The city of Carrollton recently received an award from the state of Texas regarding their water quality and the level of professionalism that the water district provides.

If you would like to look at moving to Carrollton or any other city in the Dallas metroplex, please check out my website or give me a call. I would love to help you.
