POLLUTED SITES

Les strates de l’industrialisation et la désindustrialisation ont superposé dans les sols et sous-sols terrestres et aquatiques des couches de pollutions et greffé dans le paysage et la géologie des bâtiments pollués, des amas de stériles, des fûts et des cuves qui libèrent au fur et à mesure de leur exposition aux intempéries et de la corrosion des résidus et poussières toxiques. L’empreinte écologique de ces ex-activités a une tendance naturelle à s’effacer de la mémoire collective et administrative. Gare à l’oubli et aux reconversions hâtives des friches industrielles et des stations-service.

Paris lead(er) instead of Paris-Plage

Notre-Dame de Paris, press release n°3

The lead is spinning around the cathedral. The dust flew away from their stony nests and the 4000 scaffolding tubes that leaned against the collapsed spire. Lead is everywhere and it is not displayed anywhere. The surroundings of the cathedral have become cult places of insanity, such as the street Cloître-Notre-Dame. The cathedral strengthening yard is suspended but in the street, the business continues. Lead micro and nano particles that fall from bells, statues and pinnacles are said to be blocked by a palisade. In Paris, since the evening of 15 April, there is a Chernobyl smell in the air in terms of information.

Our Lead-y Notre Dame

Notre-Dame de Paris, press release n°2

The screed that had fallen on the ruined cathedral cracked Saturday, April 27, 2019 * after the release of a statement co-signed by the Regional Health Agency of Ile-de-France, the prefect police station and the prefecture of Ile-de-France. The three signatories confirm lead pollution attributed to the fire of Notre-Dame de Paris.

By necessity, these pollutions are described as “very localized”. The experts from the Central Laboratory of the Prefecture of Paris did not have the time, the means or the human resources sufficient to make inspections in all the apartments, businesses, and public and private gardens affected initially by the fallout from the toxic plume of smoke in the west of Paris, particularly in the 1st, 6th and 7th arrondissements, and secondly contaminated by the flight of dust, ashes, and swirling soot scattered around the burned historic building.

Notre-Dame de Paris, press release n°1

After the melting of at least 300 tons of lead in the gables of the spire and in the roof, Notre-Dame de Paris is now a polluted site.

The cathedral has now become filled with toxic waste. To know the complexity and extent of the problem, it would be useful to gather information from the archives, knowledge from specialists in liturgical art, and testimonies of those who participated in the recent maintenance in order to map all the possible toxic substances used on this historic vessel.
