The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District released the third and final report today detailing the results of its findings from extensive sampling and testing at Jana Elementary School in Florissant, Missouri. The report, which is focused on soil sampling conducted under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP), confirms that the immediate school grounds are safe from a radiological standpoint.
“Like the first two reports released April 25 and May 9, this report also builds upon the preliminary results we shared with the community last November. It provides additional data from our health physics surveys and sampling that confirms there are no areas of radiological concern in or around the school,” said Phil Moser, St. Louis District program manager for FUSRAP. “Our efforts to provide real results to the community continue. We are currently in the process of removing the actual contamination in the Coldwater Creek creekbank which we anticipate completing this fall, to be followed by a separate post remediation report.”
