CHICAGO (CBS) — The lead contaminated water scandal in Flint, Michigan has prompted hundreds of Chicagoans to take advantage of a little known city service — free water quality testing.
City leaders just published the first results of those tests.
Only two of the 85 homes exceed federal limits on lead. They are a home on the 5400 block of South Harper Avenue and another on the 10400 block of South Vernon Avenue. A third home, on the 8000 block of South Hermitage Avenue, received results just under the federal limit, or action level, of 15 parts per billion.
