Learn about lead in DC drinking water at Green Neighbors meeting Oct 3

Green Neighbors, a volunteer community group focused on environmental issues, is holding a community meeting (in conjunction with the Sierra Club) to discuss lead in the DC water system. The meeting is set for October 3rd at the Petworth Library from 6:30pm - 8pm. You can learn more about the issue and impact of lead in drinking water, and what you can do to make positive changes for yourself and the city.

Is there lead in your drinking water? How can you tell and what can you do about it? How serious is the problem in DC?
