Environmental regulators in Kentucky have found high levels of lead contamination at a former foundry site in Newport that is located next to homes. In Portland, Ore., state officials said Thursday that they will start canvassing a neighborhood near a former lead factory site as they prepare to test yards there for contamination. The actions are among the latest results of a USA TODAY investigation last month revealing that hundreds of neighborhoods face potential health risks from lead left in the soil by forgotten factories that operated during the 1930s to 1960s.
