"This Just In" piece reporting that testing has revealed that some Portland prop
"This Just In" piece reporting that testing has revealed that some Portland properties in the the West End and Bayside contain as much as three times the acceptable level of lead. About 70 Munjoy Hill properties were recently tested as part of one project, a partnership between the city of Portland, the University of Southern Maine (USM), and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. Those test results are not yet available, but researchers won't be surprised if they find a considerable lead burden. Samantha Langley-Turnbaugh of the USM department of environmental science hopes that education will help people limit their exposure.
