Description

For 25 years, health officials from local, state and federal agencies played down the health risks Herculaneum residents faced from the Doe Run Co.'s lead smelter operations. Documents obtained by the Post-Dispatch through open records laws show that from the mid-1970's to the mid 1980's officials knew about the lead poisoning problems but they did not take action to clean things up.
