Clean Water Action is conducting a study of 200 homes in Baltimore City and County to test for lead contamination in drinking water.
Lead can enter water if it is present in the service lines, in-home pipes, or faucets and fixtures in your home, and if water is corrosive or has high mineral content. To learn more about how lead enters drinking water, click here.

We lost the Pinelands.

Last Friday in Fresno, Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate for President in November, took on the California drought with his usual attention to detail and accuracy.
