Lead Safety Brochure
PCA Consumer Lead Brochure
The PCA and the Illinois PHCC have collaborated to develop a new brochure on lead safety in drinking water. It explains what consumers can do to reduce their exposure to lead in their home; offers advice on hiring licensed plumbing contractors to test the lead in water systems; provides helpful industry website links; and includes a consumer acknowledgement and release form for our contractors to keep for their own records.
