City Officials: Tap Water Shows Elevated Lead Levels (But Gov Says Drink Up!) (CBS New York)
Thursday November 4th, 2010
Like most people, when Natalia Cole of Maspeth, Queens heard there were elevated levels of lead in the city’s water supply, she got a bit nervous. [...]
But the city said what was found was an increase in lead so small, it won’t hurt you.
“The levels that were detected, which were very slightly above the action level that the EPA defines, don’t pose any clear public health risk,” said NYC DEP Commissioner Cas Holloway.
