Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (LPPP)

When children have a high level of lead in their blood (15 ug/dl or greater), we look inside and outside the home for possible sources of lead.  We can test the paint, dust, water and soil around the home.   Window sills, molding, and doors are a common source of lead.  There is no charge for the testing.

We talk with family members about:

• where the lead hazards are in the home
• how to stop children from being exposed
• how to clean the areas where lead is found
• how to get a child tested for lead
• how to get help from other programs   

We also offer:

• community presentations

• lead testing for children who do not have a primary doctor or insurance (children age 6 months to 18 years)
