Lead is less commonly used today, but does exist in lead-based paint and plumbing pipes. Lead, even when present is not a hazard to people unless it is disturbed. EHS can sample materials to determine if they contain lead and it is important to determine the presence of lead prior to any renovation if there is reason to suspect it may be present. EHS also has records to determine if an area has been tested previously. If you have questions about lead, contact EHS.
