Schools With High Lead Exposure Risk by City

Post By: Nick Bedbury, Upstream Research™

Here at Upstream Reports™ we have been analyzing the potential environmental risks, including lead exposure risk, for over 98,000 schools in America. 

The areas in red have a lead exposure risk at or above that of schools in Flint, Michigan or the 95th percentile nationally.  

The lead risk index is based on work done by the Washington State Department of Health that uses factors such as housing age, levels of infrastructure investment, observed cases of elevated blood lead levels to forecast lead exposure risk.

To learn more about which schools may be at risk for lead and other toxic exposure in your neighborhood, as well information on drinking water and air quality, sign up before December 31st for a free Upstream Report about your address .
