High levels of lead was found in about 30 Newark Nj schools which caused the schools to shut down their water supply and use alternative methods for drinking water and using water for food. The Department of Environmental Protection found these high levels and they acted immediately. Unfortunately parents were delayed in knowing about this incident, but the city of Newark is acting fast to fix the issue. LEAD INFO

A plan has been submitted to the federal government to test the water to make sure the levels aren’t higher than they fear. To all my home town folks its important you know what happens when you encounter lead in your drinking water, not to scare you, but to keep you informed:

From Children To Adults:

  • Behavior and learning Issues
  • Hearing Issues
  • Anemia
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Kidney Failure
  • Reproductive Issues (Women and Men)
  • Rare Cases Seizures, Coma’s and Death

Newark New Jersey is doing everything they can to fix the problems at the school, they also report; “we received assurance this was not high-level emergency nature that a day would make,” – Christopher Cerf Superintendent of Newark Public Schools.

“The DEP says no lead has been found in the Newark Water Department’s source water, and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka blamed old pipes, and not the water supply, for the elevated lead levels.”CBSLocal
