NO AMOUNT of lead exposure is safe.
Lead Exposure can lower IQ, lead to behavioral problems, cause heart disease and even lead to death.
Lead (Pb) Pipes are not the only potential source of elevated lead levels in your drinking water.
Many people think that because they do not have lead pipes in their plumbing system that they do not have to worry about the risks of lead poisoning from contaminated drinking water, but that is not the case. Homes built before 1988, and plumbing fixtures installed prior to 2014 may contain lead which can leach into your property’s drinking water.
Lead Contributors, such as lead solder and some brass fixtures, can elevate lead levels in drinking water to exceed the current EPA guideline of 15ppb. Read more.
Many states are beginning to mandate testing at schools and other public facilities where lead exposure from drinking water can occur.
Lead disclosure in pipes and in water in real estate transactions may not be mandatory nationwide (yet), but the number of states requiring disclosure related to the dangers of lead in water is growing.
- Eleven states require mandatory disclosure of pipe material, some of which specifically ask about the presence of lead pipes.
- Twenty states require disclosure of general environmental hazards, including lead and other hazardous conditions.
