Many environmental studies have been conducted by contractors working for the Manatee County School Board, Manatee County and other organizations, and the findings have not discovered any contaminants in the soil or groundwater which may have caused concern.

At the request of the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners and the School Board, DOH-Manatee conducted a health survey of those who worked at and attended the old Bayshore High School building regarding cancer diagnoses.
