TOO MUCH LEAD IN THE WATER CAN BE HARMFUL

TOO MUCH LEAD IN THE WATER CAN BE HARMFUL
13/03/2017

If the concentration of minerals and bacteria in resources in watertanks is a concern our water testing and sampling is perfect for you. We can supply you with sample bottles free of charge and have them professionally tested. Once the bottles have been filled up, we ask that you return them to us by 3pm so we can process them as quickly as possible. If we receive them later the water must sit for longer before being tested, potentially harming the results.

Depending on the results that come from our examinations, we will recommend cleaning, disinfection and chlorination services should they be required. The aim is to ensure the water in your tanks is safe for purpose.

Within certain establishments, water testing becomes even more crucial to be sure that the inhabitants are not at any risk. This is especially true for schools. In Houston, Texas, lead levels in 14 of the district elementary schools were found by investigators to be above those federal limits that were accepted. In the weeks following an inspection that looked into the district’s policies, the Houston Independent Schools District had tests conducted at its educational buildings.

At one school in particular located in Southeast Houston, a sample from within the school’s science laboratories had tested 80 times higher for lead than what was permitted by the federal government. Officials had stated that the lab was not in use by students and is vacant. Administrators have said that plumbing repairs must be carried out in order to rid the water supply of lead any time a sample comes back testing over the limit.

It’s vital that high levels of lead are not present within water as it can have a number of detrimental effects. According to the Environmental Protection Agency consumption of it can result in lower IQ’s, hyperactivity, and can cause learning difficulties.

At Nationwide Water Solutions we help clients looking for water testing and sampling on a wide array of properties, including the likes of commercial outlets, schools, universities and offices. Due to the close relationship we have with analytical partners, we aim to give you the fastest possible turnaround on your samples. On top of this we can help to resolve the situation, cleaning up supplies to ensure they are fit for use.
