Living in an industrial town brings its own special problems.  Growing up, I don't recall much said about this situation in Menasha.  Of course, that was in the '60s and '70s so measures to mitigate the problem had already been implemented, I would imagine.  But I do recall stories that occasionally came up in the newspapers for the families living around the Neenah Foundry near Winneconne Avenue.  I can only imagine the problems they faced.
