"Cleaning up the properties will wind down a program started in 2005 to identify schools and day care centers in the “plume” of toxic chemicals spewed over Lakewood, Tacoma, Federal Way, Des Moines, Normandy Park, Vashon Island and parts of Seattle for decades, and to clean them up. The stack’s plume fell over 1,000 square miles, but the cleanup program concentrated on the 315 square miles closest to the smelter and most contaminated by its operations."   (in the Paso del Norte region of El Paso, Juarez Mexico and Sunland Park New Mexico, this distance would include the new planned International City of San Jeronimo/Santa Teresa, and the keystone Maquiladora Foxcon.)
