The San Mateo Civil Grand Jury has investigated the considerable health and safety concerns regarding recycled tire rubber, or “crumb rubber,” used for playground and athletic field surfaces. On July 10, the grand jury released a report urging school districts, including the San Mateo Union High School District, to stop the use of turf derived from rubber tires until an ongoing study by the Environmental Protection Agency provides further data on the health effects. Currently, the school’s football field is an artificial turf field, which has crumb rubber.
