Mold, bacteria and lead found in testing at Hamilton High School West

HAMILTON — Parts of Hamilton High School West will likely remain closed for the rest of the school year after a report found bacteria, lead-based paint and mold in some athletic areas.
Superintendent James Parla asked the environmental firm Karl and Associates to test the areas of the building after closing them last week. Obtained by the Trentonian through an Open Public Records Act request, the report found evidence of mold spores, coliform, E.

“These areas will not be used until they are properly remediated,” he said.

I wonder how high lead content is in that area when it has been decided that it won't be used for a certain period of time. Perhaps it is high enough that can already pose dangers to health.
