Does your water have lead?
A report released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that water in 15,000 homes in the District that received repairs during a massive effort to remove lead pipes may still be contaminated by dangerous levels of lead. The Post is trying to get a clearer picture of families who may be affected.
If you live on a block where the city has replaced lead pipes -- but you opted not to or don't know if the pipes on private property have been changed we'd like to hear from you. In addition, if you recently had your water tested for lead, what were the results?
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're not certain whether your neighborhood might be affected you can check our block-by-block list from the CDC. There's also a map of planned and completed pipe replacement projects.
