New Lead Law Goes Into Effect April 22, 2010
What does this mean for you, the consumer? The new law requires contractors, property managers and others paid to replace windows or renovate residential houses, apartments and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 to be certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This new law is designed to protect children from leaded dust that may result from disturbing lead-based paint.
The Illinois Department of Public Health will be conducting meetings around the chicagoland area. For more information, please call the Illinois Lead Program at 217-782-3517
