What is lead?
Lead can enter drinking water through corrosion of plumbing materials, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder. However, new homes and buildings are also at risk: even legally “lead-free” plumbing may contain up to eight percent lead.
