Lead-free faucets

From lead-free wall coverings in public housing to lead-free faucets in public schools, lead pollution in New York has always been a concern of consumers. On September 25th, the New York City Independent Budget Office (IBO) released a survey that showed data relevant to the public – lead in the faucets of residential buildings in New York City. The survey found that New York City’s overall lead content is in line with federal standards, but the over-target is mostly concentrated in small, older private homes.
The lead in the faucet is very harmful to public health, sanitary,especially children’s health. Children with high levels of lead in the blood often have low learning ability, low IQ, insufficient concentration and antisocial behavior.

The survey found that small, old, especially in homes built around the 1920s and 1930s, the lead content of faucets is more likely to exceed federal standards.

According to data from 2006 to 2016, homes with lead levels exceeding US federal standards are concentrated in Ridgewood, Queens (near the Brooklyn border) and Maspeth (between Elmhurst and Sunnyside), Bedford Stuyvesant, Brown in Brooklyn. Co-OpCity and Riverdale and SouthBeach on Staten Island.

In areas such as Manhattan, South Bronx, Corona in Queens, and Brooklyn Heights in Brooklyn, lead levels are relatively low.

Because lead is ductile and easy to forge, it is often used to make water pipes. In 1961, New York City banned the use of lead public waterways to connect residential and urban water sources, and the water pipes installed thereafter were usually not leaded.
