Lead-tainted water: How to keep homes, schools, daycares and workplaces safe
from The Conversation
Lead-tainted water is, too often, present in our daycares and schools, in our workplaces and homes. Journalists, co-ordinated by Concordia University’s Institute for Investigative Journalism, retrieved the results of municipal lead tests from 14 Canadian cities via Freedom of Information Act requests. They also collected water samples by knocking on doors and interviewed people who assumed their water was safe. One-third of water samples, most of them taken from older homes suspected to have lead service lines, exceeded Health Canada’s new guidance of five parts per billion (ppb); 18 per cent exceeded 15 ppb.
