Spring 2021 Living Safely with Lead Web Series – Apr 20

Posted by Clean Water Action on April 20, 2021

Lead is in every neighborhood and exposure can come from paint, dust, soil, drinking water pipes, renovation, and home repair. While childhood exposure to lead can cause developmental disorders, we should all be concerned as lead exposure bio-accumulates in your bones and can contribute to dementia, Parkinson’s disease and other mental illness later in life. Knowledge is the key to avoiding lead poisoning!

You are invited to participate in our Spring 2021 Living Safely with Lead Web Series.

Join us to get your questions answered from experts on the hazards of lead, hear the different safety measures that you can take to protect you and your family and learn what to do if you are a tenant or landlord.
