Flush Water Pipes to Reduce Lead Contamination Risk, Schools Told

It looks like a case of health care via health scare in the West. Panic triggered off by relatively minor episodes is resulting in preemptive efforts on a vast scale. In Canada after the measles outbreak, it is the risk of lead contamination that is engaging the attention of the Ontario province authorities.

The province is also proposing that municipalities start regularly testing for lead at a specified number of taps, notify the building owners and take corrective action. Toronto has 65,000 homes connected to the city's water system via lead pipes, according to Councillor Janet Davis, who said yesterday that the city should be doing more to inform homeowners about the replacement option and perhaps develop "creative financing" to help lower-income residents do so.

Of the 160 homes the city voluntarily tested, 7.5 per cent exceeded the recommended level, with all but one of the elevated readings in the teens.
