 Lead Paint Remediation in Dwellings

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.

 

Lead is a toxic metal that 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; 434,000 children in the United States, aged one to five, are estimated to have elevated blood-lead levels.

Lead paint remediation in dwellings is the focus of this Action Team, which is addressing the technological barriers to early detection, abatement, and portable testing.
