    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.

  • salty_dog0544 Semper Fidelis

    I wonder who will be the defendant and whom the plaintiff in any lawsuit should any of you find the lead levels in your home's water are high. Who then is responsible? Surely not the city?
    I changed my supply to copper three days before moving in, and installed a meter.

  • BErich northsider4ages

    I am sure in years to come 'they' will find out problems with copper lines affecting people's health.
    No one gets out of here alive
