Lead is a naturally occurring metal found in the earth’s crust. Much of the lead in our environment comes from burning fossil fuels, mining, and manufacturing. Lead is a highly toxic metal that produces a range of adverse health effects, particularly in young children. Because of health concerns, lead from gasoline, paints, and other products has been dramatically reduced in recent years.

Livingston County Health Department (LCHD) does not perform lead inspections on private business or homes. However, LCHD does have qualified staff to assist in answering questions and providing consultation regarding lead. The information that LCHD has for distribution can be obtained by accessing the links and websites below.
