Lead the Fight Against Lead - Go the Extra Mile

Abatement (the removal or covering over of lead contamination) is expensive, but permanent and may be better in the long-run than just trying to limit exposure. However, it is not practical for every school and there are professionals to help you with your decision. A general list of removal or covering techniques can be found at Lead Poisoning Prevention. Contacts in your area can give you more information about long-term solutions for physical exposures in the structure of the building and exposures in your water supply. Click here for local contacts and then click the state your school is in, or call 1-800-424-LEAD [5323].
