Chris Young on Environment

Democratic Senate Challenger


Stop constructing schools on toxic dumps

Chris Young filed a complaint with the Department of Environmental management on the Pleasant View School. Young stated, "I believe the city of Providence and Cicilline's administration must stop constructing schools on toxic land and dumps including the Springfield school in Providence"

An employee from the Pleasant View School in Providence has informed Young of high rates of breast cancer and other cancers in this school. A foundation crack that may have been releasing toxins has also been reported. Young said, "I want to voice a request for investigation into the high rate of breast cancer among the teachers at this school as well the other schools constructed on toxic land and or dumps. I also seek testing of what is reported to be a failing ventilation system for PCBs and other toxins at the Pleasant View School." D.E.M has confirmed that the Pleasant View School was built on a dump, also that trash was used to level the property off for the construction of the Pleasant View School.
