Lead is a toxic material that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes.  Lead also can be emitted into the air from motor vehicles and industrial sources, and lead can enter drinking water from plumbing materials.  Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death.  Children six years old and under are most at risk.  The most common sources of lead poisoning are from deteriorating lead-based paint, lead contaminated dust and lead contaminated resident soil.  To read more about Lead Poisoning and how to check your family and home for lead, click HERE



Other Village departments provide services and programs for low and moderate income residents, including the elderly and disabled.
