Are there other metals in Trail, besides lead, that residents should be aware of?

Risks from metals other than lead have been studied in Trail through human health risk assessment. The most recent study concluded that the risk from metals other than lead is very low to negligible, and that lead reduction should continue to be the main focus for THEP programs. Ongoing emissions reductions, along with soil management activities, are further reducing levels of metals in the Trail environment. Trail area health statistics have been reviewed by the B.C. Cancer Agency and Ministry of Health. They have not found evidence of increased rates of disease due to metals in the environment.
