Navajo Nation homes contaminated with mold

The Navajo Nation's housing authority is addressing a mold problem that has contaminated the majority of homes at the Greasewood Springs, Arizona, development.

The authority has already relocated some residents and is in the process of moving others so that repair of the five-year-old development can take place. More than 25 households, including elders, youth and veterans, are affected.

Mold can exacerbate and cause serious health problems, including asthma and other respiratory ailments, if not addressed.
