News Drops: Some schools in Brick, NJ found to have high lead levels in drinking water.

On Friday, this notice was sent out to residents of Brick, NJ due to elevated lead levels being found in 5 school’s drinking water. The Brick school district decided to test sources of potable water due to the aging buildings and potential for lead-related problems. Our own Marc Edwards knows all too well how lead can leech from pipes and have major health complications, especially with his work looking into Washington DC’s drinking water crisis several years back. Hopefully Brick will not only continue to test their school’s water, but make the necessary changes to prevent any major public health issues.
