Water quality tests data shows elevated lead levels in Toronto homes

Source: Thestar, Date: May , 2014

Thirteen per cent of household water tests conducted in Toronto over the past six years showed unsafe levels of lead.

Mark Haan and his wife Mariela and 10-year-old son Michael live in an East York home with lead water service. They want to replace the old pipes but cannot afford it.

Thirteen per cent of household water tests conducted in Toronto over the past six years showed unsafe levels of lead, according to city data obtained by the Star.

The data, drawn from the 15,000 samples, was collected by Torontonians from their water taps and submitted to the city for analysis between 2008 and 2014.
