Zahn's Corner Middle School

A private company will test schools and homes near the former uranium enrichment plant in Piketon for radiological contaminants after trace amounts of enriched uranium were found at a middle school over the summer.

The Scioto Valley Local School District says classes at the closed Zahn's Corner Middle School will be held in another building next school year.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry has ordered the agency to release more than four years' worth of data from air monitors near Zahn's Corner Middle School in Pike County, which was closed last week after trace amounts of radioactive materials were found inside.
