FEW PUBLIC DRINKING WATER SUPPLIERS IN OHIO HAVE GONE OVER THE FEDERAL LIMITS FOR LEAD DURING THE PAST THREE YEARS


FEW PUBLIC DRINKING WATER SUPPLIERS IN OHIO HAVE GONE OVER THE FEDERAL LIMITS FOR LEAD DURING THE PAST THREE YEARS. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY DATA SHOWS THAT NONE OF THE STATE'S BIGGEST PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS ARE ON THE LIST OF VIOLATORS. THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH REPORTS THAT 21 DRINKING-WATER SYSTEMS IN OHIO HAVE SINCE 2013 SHOWN LEAD LEVELS HIGHER THAN THE LIMITS SET BY THE EPA. MOST ARE FAIRLY SMALL SYSTEMS INCLUDING FIVE SCHOOL OR DAY CARE WATER SYSTEMS AND FIVE MOBILE HOME PARKS. ALSO ON THE LIST IS THE VILLAGE OF SEBRING IN NORTHEASTERN OHIO. THE DRINKING WATER THERE WAS FOUND TO HAVE ELEVATED LEAD LEVELS LATE LAST SUMMER, BUT MONTHS WENT BY BEFORE RESIDENTS FOUND OUT.
