Earth Day TV Broadcast about the West Oakland
Lead Cleanup Project
Vicki Liviakis of KRON interviews Maggie O’Donnell, president of SFS Chemical Safety, about using fish bone technology and reports on a site visit by environmentalist and oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau.
Cousteau Inspired to Make Documentary Film
“Join me in a new project, one in which scientists have made an interesting discovery; chemicals in fish bones can bond to lead so tightly that this pollutant is rendered inert. My hope is to help spread the word so people in neighborhoods around the world can learn about this and how they too can decontaminate the toxic effect of lead with a resource from the sea.”
What Exactly Are We Doing With Those Fishbones?
Just mix the ground fish bone into the contaminated soil. It does smell like fish for a few days, so add a thin layer of top soil to cut the odor. Then re-landscape and enjoy your yard. Bring the kids – it’s safe now! Learn more
