short term passing will not cause health risks.
what sort of health risk in long term exposure to dust/ dirt and the general environment within a 50m radius of this old disused sheep dip that does test high for arsenic soil contamination
are you drinking well water?
are you having health problems that you are trying to tie to this sheep dip?
no, wanting to know if exposure could create problems in the future so wish to avoid them, i.e. a dwelling close to the site
if no well water, most likely not a risk.
living within 50 meters most likely is not dangerous
do you smoke?
smoking would have a worse health risk
or being overweight?
being overweight would have a hight health risk
no and not overweight , thank you for your time
