Lead Poisoning - Be Concerned Be Very Concerned

Original post made by Lillian, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jun 23, 2023

For decades the children going to the Mohr, Fairlands and Hart schools have been exposed to lead poisoning from aircraft flying from the Livermore Airport from the leaded fuel, 100LL. This fuel is sold at the FBO at the Livermore Airport. The flights West from the Livermore Airport over the Mohr, Fairlands and Hart schools and neighborhoods occur all day and night long.

A more recent case is the Reid Hillview Airport KRHV in the San Jose/Santa Clara area. This is a small airport and is scheduled to be closed due to the lead poisoning of their children. In August 2021, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to pursue early closure of Reid-Hillview Airport. They have already banned the sale of leaded fuel at that airport. It was initially scheduled to be closed in 2031.

The children in the Reid Hillview Airport flight path were tested for lead poisoning. The levels were compared to the lead poisoning of the Flint Michigan Children. The Santa Clara County findings are here. Web Link

The Pleasanton and Livermore children have already been poisoned for decades. Don't wait any longer. Stop the sale of Aviation Fuel 100LL at the Livermore Airport now. Lead poisoning can damage a child's brain, nervous system and development.
