ST. LOUIS – Public health and safety are top priorities for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, especially when it comes to the welfare of children. We are committed to working with the school board and community leaders to help provide a safe learning environment for the Jana Elementary School students. We believe this community deserves a second opinion.
Beginning Monday Oct. 24, 2022, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will expand our sampling to include the entire property with soil samples and structure surveys both inside and outside the school.
Preliminary results of our testing will be available within two weeks. Additionally, we are coordinating with our partners at the Department of Energy to conduct a peer review of our work.
