Exploration of mostly-abandoned Picher, Oklahoma, which was once (and still may be) known as the most toxic town in the United States. While the town is considered toxic, research showed that it is safe to visit the town. One would have to live there in order to suffer from decline of health. It is also recommended to stay on the paved paths, as the ground was made weak due to mining.
In the past, the town of Picher, Oklahoma, was known as a lead and zinc mining boomtown. Named for O.S. Picher, who owned Picher Lead company, the town’s population peaked in 1926. It’s residential count was up to over 14,000. Beyond that, however, that number began to grow smaller. By the time the year 1960 rolled around, there were barely more than 2,500 people residing in the town.
In 1996, a study showed that over 30% if the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning, due to groundwater contamination. Residents also suffered from hypertension, high lung cancer rates, and respiratory infections. There was also a high infant-mortality rate.
Another factor in the poor health of residents was thanks to the enormous piles of toxic mine tailings that are still standing today. These mine tailings, known as chat piles, are sometimes 150+ feet tall and can be as wide as four football fields. A mandatory evacuation was agreed upon by both the EPA and the State of Oklahoma. Residents were given buyout checks so they could start a new life elsewhere.
The year 2006 brought a study from the Army Corps of Engineers showing that nearly 85% of the buildings in Picher were badly undermined, many of which could collapse at any time. The erosion of the town was accelerated further by an EF-4 tornado in May 2008, which destroyed 150 homes. In 2009, the high school held its last graduation. In the same year, The state of Oklahoma made the decision to disincorporate the town. In 2010, the town contained only 20 residents, which were those who absolutely refused to leave at any cost...
