The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Division of Water Supply and Geoscience has published a website with links to important information for consumers, schools and child care facilities, and water providers concerning lead in drinking water. With recent lead issues highly publicized in Flint, Michigan and Newark, New Jersey, this topic is of emerging importance. As lead is most often a result of leaching from older pipes, fixtures and solder, the website recommends periodic flushing before using taps, and periodic testing. The NJDEP website can be found here http://www.nj.gov/dep/watersupply/dwc-lead.html
