Water System Lead Violations Found in Kansas

A national environmental group says all lead water pipes should be replaced.

A new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council says more than 5,000 public water systems—including 68 in Kansas—are in violation of EPA rules meant to protect the public from lead in the water they drink. But as Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson reports, that may be just the tip of the iceberg. 

Bryan Thompson is a reporter for the KHI News Service in Topeka. He's also a contributor to Heartland Health Monitor, a reporting collaboration focused on health issues and their impact in Kansas and Missouri. The partners — Kansas Public Radio, KCUR, KMUW, KCPT Public Television and the KHI News Service — strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of health and health-related issues.
