Lead Contamination in Drinking Water
Drinking water is tightly regulated in the United States and, for the most part, is remarkably safe. Recent lead-contamination episodes in Flint, Michigan, and many other cities, however, have highlighted the fragility of this public health success story and the serious health risks lead poses in significant portions of the U.S. drinking water supply. SciLine’s next media briefing will cover how and where lead gets into the water supply, the effects of childhood lead poisoning, disparities in access to clean water, and how U.S. drinking water is regulated. This briefing will be web-based and accessible via telephone or computer, so you can attend and ask questions from wherever you are.
