About Lead Water Contamination


There are a few ways lead can contaminate your home's water supply. In some cases, lead that is used in the manufacturing process gets mixed in as metallurgical waste. If this water is not properly filtered and processed it can find its way into ground water and other water sources such as lakes, rivers and streams. One of the more common ways lead finds its way into our homes drinking water is a result of corroding lead solder used to assemble copper piping.

The human body is not equipped to handle high levels of lead being ingested from water or any other source. In large amounts, lead can cause serious damage to our bodies such as damage to the brain, kidneys, nervous system, and red blood cells. Thankfully, the EPA has labeled lead to be a highly toxic metal that poses a serious health risk and has set standards for water treatment facilities. Currently the EPA has set a limit of 0.05 mg/l as an allowable amount of lead to be found in drinking water.
