Study: Local communities have elevated lead levels in water

A newly released study by an environmental advocacy organization lists several Bay Area communities with elevated levels of lead in drinking water.

The study was conducted by the National Resource Defense Council. It found that unsafe lead levels are widespread in the United States.

Lead exposure can cause health problems, especially in children, who are more susceptible to possible brain injury, which can cause loss of intelligence, behavior problems and limit concentration ability.

According to the study, 18 million Americans are served by water systems which violated the EPA's lead and copper rule in 2015. Those violations generally meant the water systems were failing to test the water, failing to treat it or failing to report that data to government agencies.

The NRDC study also found nearly 4 million people get drinking water that exceeds the EPA action level of 15 parts per billion.

"These are systems that would be required by the EPA to take different actions in order to reduce the lead in their water," said Dr. Kristi Pullen Fedinick, co-author of the study.

In Hillsborough County, the study showed Southern Aire RV Park, Sun City Mobile Home Park and Pine Haven Mobile Home Community all had water tests that revealed lead levels above the action level. That was based on tests from 2014 and 2015.

Since then, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection told FOX 13 Wednesday it is working with all three communities and more recent tests revealed levels now below 15 parts per billion.

The study identified the Venice Ranch Mobile Home Estates in Sarasota County and the Highland Park, Laurel Mobile Home Park and Saddlebag Lake Resort communities in Polk County as having lead levels about the EPA standard for immediate action.

The NRDC says the only way to know if drinking water is safe is to have it tested by a water utility.
