    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • James, inside piping, unlike the service line from the water main, is not lead. Duh back. As far as filters go, not all will remove lead so you have carefully read the label. Double Duh.

    Paul please these houses are seriously old. To each their own.

Developer Pulls Plug On Major Development Planned At Canaryville Scrap Yard

Ald. Thompson said the trouble began with a disagreement about the acquisition of a scrap metal yard next door to the project: Green Metal Distribution, 4325 S. Halsted.
