    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

  • paul....life is a dice throw. Yes, you probably had a surge in lead contamination immediately following the work. Once the newly exposed lead in the join is covered behind the chemicals put in the water to do that, your overall exposure will probably decline below the level it was before the repair. On a daily basis you can further reduce your risk by flushing the water that has stood in your supply pipe overnight.

    Then there's radon in the basement.

  • i have a hard time remembering the details because I was just a kid but, I think my grandfather once had rodan in his basement, nebula 71 star was able to rid his basement of rodan by sending this guy George. then ponch gave me a snickers bar because he thought I was diabetic and starsky and hutch drove me home in a red tomato.
