[ARCHIVED] Lead in Lenawee County

Did you know that money is available for FREE lead inspections and remediation? Lead is a naturally occurring metal that can be found in dust, soil and lead-based paint. Too much exposure to lead can cause behavior problems, low IQ and poor grades in school, hearing problems, learning difficulties, growth delays and persistent tiredness or hyperactivity. If you live in a home built before 1978 you are at a higher risk of lead exposure. For some ways to protect your child from lead poisoning visit www.cdc.gov/nceh/lead/tips.htm .
