Lead and Arsenic Soil Testing

Asked September 1, 2016, 1:14 PM EDT

Would you please direct me to lead and arsenic soil testing companies? I am a coordinator for a youth gardening program. We are planning to create a garden that is next to an old building and would like to know if there is lead and/or arsenic in the soil and at what levels.

Tillamook County Oregon

Thanks for your soil testing question! Here's a link to the Portland, OR Soil Testing agency affiliated with the Lead Safe America organization. Note that they say there's a current backlog of 2-4 weeks due to the public school situation in Portland.

Good luck!
