First lead tests show OU turf safe
(2008-04-24)
(WOUB) - Preliminary testing indicates no problem with the artificial turf on Ohio University athletic fields.

The testing was conducted on Peden Stadium and the field hockey turfs in response to concerns over high lead levels.

OU says there appears to be no danger to players.

Examinations at football fields across Ohio began after New Jersey health officials said they found high lead levels in artificial turf at two fields in that state.

Additional tests at Ohio University are planned for today.
