    • Description:
      The Senate Appropriations Committee directed the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) “to help assess the level of lead poisoning of families, especially children, at the Tar Creek Superfund Site in Oklahoma. A report to Congress on this assessment is due no later than July 31, 2004” (Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development, and Independent Agencies, Appropriations Bill, 2004, Senate Report 108–143, September 5, 2003, page 86). Mine tailings and lead-based paint are two potential sources contributing to lead exposures in children residing in the Tar Creek Site area. Children can be exposed to these sources of lead primarily through contact with household dust and soil. tarcreekreport.pdf
