Lead Poisoning

Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program


New State rules have changed the acceptable levels of lead in drinking water from 15ppb to 10ppb. This new standard will go into effect December 1, 2021. (click for more information)

The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program helps to insure that children less than six years old are safe from lead-based paint hazards. Along with the regional environmental health specialist, lead inspections can be performed to try and determine the source of a child’s lead poisoning and when a child’s blood lead level has exceeded the acceptable limits.
