Home Renovation Leads to Toxic Lead Levels in Lawrenceville

Lawrenceville has an old housing stock, and as new construction and renovations occur across the neighborhood, it’s important for all of us to know lead-safe practices for working on homes. For homes built before 1978, the EPA’s Lead Renovation Repair and Painting Rule requires that anyone working on them receive certification by the EPA, post informational signs, contain work areas to prevent dust and debris leaving the work area, use power tools with HEPA exhaust control, follow clean up practices with a verification procedure, and more. For more information, please view this info sheet on lead in Lawrenceville homes.
