HEALTH CONSULTATION

GIBRALTAR MANUFACTURING COMPANY
EAST ALTON, MADISON COUNTY, ILLINOIS


CONCLUSIONS

The Gibralter Manufacturing site poses no apparent public health hazard at this time. Lead is the only contaminant that is a potential public health concern at this site should children enter the site and come in contact with lead in the soil. However, a child is not likely to trespass on the site because of the site location and site security.


RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Site access should remain restricted.
  2. IDPH should review any new data generated for the site.
