Washington, DC public schools recently lowered their own “action level” for lead in water to 1 ppm (parts per billion). Yet Prince George's County uses a lead level of 20?
Clearly PGCPS Should be using an action level of 1ppb , just as Washington DC Schools are doing.
Why are Washington DC Schools using 1 ppb and Prince George's County using 20 ppb?
