Lead In Your Water




Poisoning You and Your Kids


When elected and appointed government officials, at all levels, know but do nothing.

They  know but they don’t admit it till the damage is done and exposed.

They Lie and Should Be Prosecuted!

It’s more than a lie. It’s a criminal lie!



Is there lead in your drinking water...

and/or other deadly chemicals?


Until The Damage Is Done

        They knew about lead in Flint, Michigan and didn’t tell or fix it!

        They knew about lead in Newark, New Jersey and didn’t tell or fix it!

        They knew about PFOA* in Petersburgh, N.Y. and didn’t tell or fix it.

        They knew about PFOA in Hoosick Falls, N.Y. and didn’t tell or fix it.

        They knew about PFOA in North Bennington,Vt. and didn’t tell or fix it.


An analysis by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization, has detected PFOA in 103 water systems, serving nearly seven million people in 27 states. And this is just the beginning!



All those so-called responsible officials admit to errors in failing to fix the water problems...only after they are caught. They are always sorry after it is too late. In most cases they do little or nothing to furnish clean water.



Contact your state environmental protection agency or the Environmental Working Group and find out if your source of water is safe to drink. Has your source of water been checked for contaminants? Don’t delay! Your health and that of your family could be at risk.



*Is there a safe level of lead in drinking water?

*Following 2 paragraphs quoted from the EPA; Source: www.epa.gov/your-drinking-water/basic-information-about-lead-drinking-water
"The Safe Drinking Water Act requires EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to determine the level of contaminants in drinking water at which no adverse health effects are likely to occur with an adequate margin of safety. These non-enforceable health goals, based solely on possible health risks, are called maximum contaminant level goals (MCLGs). EPA has set the maximum contaminant level goal for lead in drinking water at zero because lead is a toxic metal that can be harmful to human health even at low exposure levels. Lead is persistent, and it may bioaccumulate in the body over time.


young children, infants, and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead because the physical and behavioral effects of lead occur at lower exposure levels in children than in adults. A dose of lead that would have little effect on an adult can have a significant effect on a child. In children, low levels of exposure have been linked to damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, shorter stature, impaired hearing, and impaired formation and function of blood cells."
