When I was growing up in Miami in the 1960s and the 1970s, I remember the giant chat pile you could see over in Picher miles away. That, of course, is gone now but I wonder if folks remember that one of the uses of that chat was to mix it with concrete and make a building block material. The company that did this was Miami Stone and I think they went out of business a while back. However, I wonder how many hundreds of homes were built with this product that certainly contained levels of lead from the chat that was in the building block product.
Then the question becomes whether the lead in these blocks could leach out of the building block material over time and threaten the environment.
Finally, I wonder if folks that have this product in their homes are at risk. Might be something for the Norman Transcript to look into further.
