Lead

Lead can be found in paint, drinking water, soil, and even air.

Children and pregnant women are most at risk for lead poisoning from common lead sources, but other adults can also be harmed from exposure to lead.

 

Simple ways to combat lead exposure:

  • Run your kitchen faucet for 8 minutes each morning to flush the line.

  • Use a water filter that filters out lead and other contaminants. 

  • Inspect and maintain all painted surfaces to prevent paint deterioration.

  • Address water damage quickly and completely.

  • Keep your home clean and dust-free.
