    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools
    Chicago Public Schools announced Thursday the list of 28 elementary schools being tested for lead, a measure CEO Forrest Claypool insisted was being taken "out of an abundance of caution."
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • CJL

    This is a serious question

    I did not realize the entire importance of this testing lead

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, there isn't any found

    Sounds as likely a path to success as intentionally getting hit by a CTA bus. If you're lucky, you might get a large amount of money (with 1/2 to 1/3 going to your lawyer), if you're unlucky, you get killed.
