EPA pushes for more lead contamination testing

The Environmental Protection Agency visited Green Bay recently announcing a flurry of new requirements for utilities in the State of Wisconsin and the nation. The EPA wants utilities to make public all water service lines that still contain lead. The EPA also is demanding additional testing by water systems for schools and child care facilities. Dean Hoegger of the Clean Water Action Council of Northeast Wisconsin says the new restrictions don't go far enough.


Exposure to lead in drinking water as a child leads to a delay in the maturation process and damage of several vital organs including the brain and kidneys.
